Not with fixup.
The command you want is "icmp", with an acl to allow icmp messages originating from an internal request

 icmp deny any any outside <== prevents the outside interface from responding to ping
\\-- you must integrate the following with any existing inbound access-list

 access-list outside_in permit icmp any any echo-reply
 access-list outside_in permit icmp any any unreachable
 access-list outside_in permit icmp any any time-exceeded

So i don't specify 'icmp deny any any outside echo-reply', unreachable, etc.? just plain old 'deny any any ouside' seems to be working but all i've done is ping it. I just don't want it showing up in any kind of scan. acl seems fine. thanks dood!
