My company is running a Cisco Pix 506E Firewall, which I manage from a PDM ( Cisco PIX device manager 3.0)
I need to know how to set it up so I can Ping an outside IP address, so I can run a program called ping plotter.

Add the following commands to allow ping echo replies:

access-list acl_outside_in permit icmp any any echo-reply
access-group acl_outside_in in interface outside

If you already have an access list applied to the outside interface, just add the access-list command above to that ACL.

If you want to also allow the "traceroute" command to work, add these additional statements:

access-list acl_outside_in permit icmp any any time-exceeded
access-list acl_outside_in permit icmp any any unreachable
