If you can access the internet, you should be able to ping any outside ip as well.
Would be helpful if you can give the exact error you're getting...

I am getting request time out error with 100% loss of packets, when i try to ping outside IP address. i can ping every IP inside my Private network including different offices which are at different geographical locations. I can access almost every website by using IE. But if i try to ping those websites i get above error. this is not creating problem but i want to know how is it possible ? may be its because of proxy server in our network , just want to know how it works.?

thanx for reply.

Its quite possible to block all ICMP (that's the packets sent when you 'ping') traffic at the firewall. Since you're able to ping your private network hosts, maybe your firewall is set to either block ping requests or replies or both to outside your network.
There's just no way of telling if that's the case here, unless you're the one doing the config...

Hope this helps!
