Unable to ping public IP?


I have a Fedora PC with IP 220.x.x.x in a corporate which I can ssh through Desktop Windows PC when I am in company. But when I am trying to ping my Windows desktop IP being inside the Fedora PC its not working.
How can I troubleshoot this?

Can You help me where I need to check out? I have a Gateway Entry in /etc/sysconfig/network.Do I need to check firewall on the same.
What I can notice is that I can ssh to this Machine only from my Corporate PC.Not from my personal Laptop(Room).But amazingly when I try to ssh:
Code:
[corporatePC]#ssh 220.x.x.x
I can login through PC.
But when I am trying pinging from:
Code:
[publicserver]$ping corporatePC
Unable to ping.

Please suggest what steps I can follow.
How can I know if gateway is firewalled or further check about bottlenecks?

First of all, 10.0.0.0/8 is private IP space. Unless your organization's routers just happen to be routing said network internally, you are not going to be pinging to it, period.

Secondly, even if you were on the same network, the Windows box may be running a host-level firewall that is dropping incoming icmp packets.
