PIX 515 won't Ping

I've setup a PIX 515UR as follows:


I can't ping from the host to the Proxy. I also can't ping from the Proxy to the host. I believe I've correctly set the access-lists and access-groups according to the documentation. I can Ping the outside and inside interfaces from the outside and inside, but I cannot Ping through the 515UR.

Building configuration...

Re: PIX 515 won't Ping

access-list acl_out permit icmp any any

access-list acl_out permit icmp any any echo-reply

access-list acl_out permit icmp any any unreachable

access-list acl_out permit icmp any any time-exceeded

dont need to apply the statement to the inside interface, remeber there is an implict deny after a permit statement!! You will be able to ping from the inside host but not from the outside in! hope this helps!
