If you are talking about a client outside the firewall trying to ping hosts on the inside...
Generally, you can't. That's the whole reason for having a firewall in the first place.
Can you be more specific about what you are trying to do?

Sorry, I have four servers on the inside of the firewall, connect to a cisco router on the outside of the pix. All servers can ping out through the pix and reach the internet. My problem lies within the servers trying to see each other or ping each other.

If they are all internal to the PIX, then you have something wrong with them, not the PIX. Are you running any type of firewall software on them?

Are the servers on the same IP Range? If so the only thing that I can think of is that there is an inconsistency with their subnet masks and therefore they are trying to go to the default gateway (Most probably the PIX) and it is not allowing ICMP back to the same interface.
