I am not sure this has something with kernel.
But the system I just

ping it from outside, I just get "Destination Host Unreachable".
Some distributions' default firewall rules respond to icmp packets with
a host unreachable packet. This is a system/network administration
thing (iptables) and nothing to do with kernel development.
I think there is not firewall in between,
There's a firewall built into linux, read the man page for the
"iptables" command. The "iptables-save" command dumps your entire
current ruleset to stdout so you can see what's in there. (You might
have to run it as root, I forget.)
