Can’t ping my static IP address from external network [closed]

I have an ubuntu server and a static IP address. When I try to ping my IP static ip from my internal network it work but, when I try from external link remote ping

I haven’t no response!!

#cat /etc/hosts localhost XUbuntu

#netstat -tapn

tcp 0 0* Listen
tcp 0 0* Listen
tcp6 0 0 ::1:443 :::* Listen
tcp6 0 0 ::1:80 :::* Listen
tcp6 192.168.1.XXX:80 192.168.1.myip:59047 ESTABLISHED

My router is DLink 868l branded Optimum …. I added the port forward rule. The problem is in the router or in y ubuntu server????
Obviously if I can’t ping the ip address for me is impossible put up online my website!


Ping uses ICMP as a protocol. Your web site would be accessed via TCP, which is a different protocol and is most often handled differently by firewalls and routers. It is not uncommon for ICMP packets to be blocked at a router, particularly from an external source.

You should test access to your web server via a browser from an external location to see if the firewall rules are correct and if you have correctly forwarded the traffic.
