ping has no port nor is it TCP
ping is ICMP Type 8
as log you machine does not accept this it can not be pinged

so it is not sure if the ISP, some router or the machine himself
does not accept ICMP

this are the last two lines of all my firewalls
the first does accept ping and the second reject all
ports not explicitly opened

iptables -A INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type 8 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -j REJECT
