Are you accessing the PIX from the inside or outside interface.  Where can you cant you ping.  It may be that you have ICMP turned off.  You can permit icmp types with access lists or conduits.  Access lists now prefered over conduits.

You can turn on ICMP temporarily with the command icmp permit any any (or the addresses to and from) Although from a security point of view I would not allow icmp for any longer than necessary.

Tracetoute may help.

Anyway of you can give us more info Im sure we will find a solution!

1. I enable PPTP in outside interface and i can ping it
2. I can get the PPTP pool IP address e.g
3. already enable "access-list 101 permit icmp any any"
4. already enable "icmp permit any outside" and "icmp permit any inside"

Is I need to create any rule for allow PPTP client to access inside network?

Is i need to create other VPN pool out of my internal IP address pool.
E.g (inside) /24
VPN pool using /24
Can I using the same address pool for PPTP VPN?
