outside ping is disabled by default

to turn it on toy need to add the following line to the config

icmp permit any echo outside

The ONLY way to manage a PIX from outside is via a VPN!! you need to enable a VPN to the firewall.

Correct. This is by design of the pix.

What exactly are you trying to access with this ? Provide more information. Also mention if this nat you have created is resolved using external dns server.

Cheers,

Of course I can ping outside IP from outside. I mean I cannot access the ouside NAT IP from inside network.

I am now using 2 DNS server, One for outside REAL IP setting. Another use for internal DNS server which set with internal LAN IP.

If you have the dns server internally for this REAL ip, then there is nothing that can be done. It is per design as Lrmoore stated.

Why shoot the messenger with a C grade (actually the 2nd messenger) just because you don't like the answer?

Don't expect anybody to answer your future questions if this is the way you judge them. First of all this has to be split and grade C just because it can't be done ? I don't own Cisco.
