I have just set up a Stateful ping exception from private to public on my
bm38sp2 box. From anywhere in my private network I can ping to the public
side no problem. I can not ping externally to my bm box, which how it should
work, However I can not ping from my BM box to the public side, but like I
said earlier everyother host on the private side can. Do I need to setup up
another filter to allow my BM box to ping the public side?

I already have a stateful filter on ping-st from private card to public
Would I have to set up a stateful filter of public to public and set both
the destination and source IP's addressed to the my public ip address of my
bm server?

thanks in advance
