ping outside interface from inside host -PIX ver 7

We have pix 515E with FOS ver 7 .We would like to know how to ping the outside interface from a host on the inside

There is NO nat-control and even after we gave icmp permit any any on the outside interface and inside interface the inside hosts whose gateway is the inside interface is unable to ping the outside interface

Any pointers appreciated

Re: ping outside interface from inside host -PIX ver 7

btw here's the quote:

"Q. I cannot ping from the network inside the PIX to the PIX outside interface, nor from the network outside the PIX to the PIX inside interface. Is this normal?

A. Yes, unlike Cisco IOS, the PIX does not respond to ICMP requests to the interfaces on the "far side" of the device that pings the PIX.
