ping does not work in two way. only one way

There are a client and a server.
Problem is client can ping server, but server can not ping client. It says network unreachabale.

Any idea?

Could you post results of "ip addr show" and "ip route show" of the two hosts?

Can you ping using the IP address instead?
Also check if the port is blocked on the client, however usually the message would be different.
