From what I have read some specific ports must be open for traceroute and ping to work.  I'm not much on it because I'm on dial-up.  I can google though.  I found these.

http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=2408

The first one will tell which ports need to be open.  They both may be good to read.

Hope this helps.

Later

Ya.. he is right..
When using proxy .. some commands like ping and traceroute etc. will not work untill they are allowed by the proxy.
I m sure u r not able to use ping too.
