Allow ping using Pix

I have configured pix firewall, but is is not allowing me to ping internet websites. I want to allow ping from LAN to Internet. I have created access list to allow ping from my LAN to ANY. When i try ping it is resolving ip but saying request time out as shown below.

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.

Request timed out.

My internal ip is xx.xx.1.1

External Ip is xx.xx.7.1

Please help me to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.


Re: Allow ping using Pix

Since you managed to resolve the url/server name to IP, this indicate that the DNS resolution works fine.

To really test & verify ping/icmp, try to ping to many sites/servers/IPs. Pinging to one site/server might not be accurate.

Also, make sure (IF) you have ACL applied on the Inside interface, to permit icmp, example, permit any any for testing purposes:

*add to your inside ACL

access-list inside permit icmp any any

access-group inside in interface inside

Make sure no ACL blocking icmp traffic on your internet router.

BTW, is:

My internal ip is xx.xx.1.1 --> private IP on Inside interface

External Ip is xx.xx.7.1 --> public IP on Outside interface

Re: Allow ping using Pix

You have to allow the reply on outside interface.

access-list 101 permit icmp any any echo-reply

access-group 101 in interface outside
