ICMP traffic in Snort+BASE

I'm trying to test snort+base in a linux box. I don't seem to get ICMP alerts. I tried ping but base does not display it as ICMP traffic. Can anyone suggest me an attack to create Alerts with ICMP traffic?

Try hping2 for packet crafting.

The standard 'hping -V -C 8 <target>' should generate the ICMP PING NMAP alert. Also make sure that the system you're scanning from isn't part of $HOME_NET

Thanx for your reply.
Actually I manage to create some ICMP host unreachable alerts, but I also downloaded and compiled hping2. And did what you said. hping is a really nice tool with many capabilities.
Thanx again
