This will block pings.

#  chain block: ICMP
/sbin/iptables -t filter -A block \
  --protocol icmp --icmp-type echo-request \
  -j LOG --log-level notice --log-prefix "DROP: ICMP ping: "
/sbin/iptables -t filter -A block \
  --protocol icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j DROP

Of course, since you've given us no information whatsoever about your
configuration, how are we to know what will work for you?
