Assuming you have a router.
Check if ICMP messages are allowed on the router.

Are you sure you have the right public IP address?

Have you forwarded the specified port from router to the PC listening to the specified port?
On the PC command: netstat -a will display ports listening (usually on the top of the list)

i dont have a router i use a modem .

i turned of my firewall , should i turn it on and enable ICMP ? is it needed ?

yes i am sure about the public ip .

no i didnt forwarded cause i dont have a router.

the netstat -a shows the port and its state which is listening .

if i dont have a router , does the firewall can set up some settings instead of the router ? cause i totally turned of the firewall ..

thanks in advance for your response .
