We had problems with our internet access and I was asked to do a ping, tracert, and parthping from my PC to the internet service provider to see what was droppoing packets.

I know how do to a ping or tracert on the ASA  appliance - but all attemtps to do a ping, tracert or pathping from my PC fialed as soon as it hit the ASA.

Could someone tell me what I need to do - I rtied creating a rule to let all icap traffic thorugh - but it still blocked the traffice.

you don't need to do all that for ICMP support... the problem is that you need to add an icmp inspection to your global policy so it understands that ICMP type 0 is a response to ICMP type 8.

assuming you have a global policy add icmp to it:

conf t
policy-map global_policy
 class inspection_default
  inspect icmp
wri mem

hope this helps,
