ASA 5540 _ I want to ping across inside to outside for testing

ASA 5540 8.2 (5)

I have tried many combinations of command line syntax suggested in this forum but none are providing success so far.

I want to ping from the Inside Interface across to the Outside Interface and visa versa.

I have tried various ACLs as well as "inspect icmp" in the config, etc still no go.

I can ping each interface from the console command line but cannot ping across each interface.

Is this even possible ?

I am open to suggestions.

thanks

Troy

Hi Troy,

Remember that the ASA is a security device, so by design it does't support what you are trying to accomplish.

" For For security purposes the security appliance does not support far-end interface ping, that is pinging the IP address of the outside interface from the inside network."

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa71/configuration/guide/trouble.html#wp1059645

Even if you are trying to ping from the ASA since I see you are trying to do a "source" ping. The source of the packet will be an internal IP address going to the outside IP.
