Hello I have just installed a RHEL box, the problem is i am able to connect to google.com via fireforx but unable to connect it using ping neither able to ping www.google.com

I have added a proxy in firefox for HTTP.

How can i check it wether my firewall is doing it? As i can visit google through firefox can i do it by links as well ? May be by setting proxy in that as well, i have tried setting http proxy for the system but no success.
