I wouldn't be so sure of that.

I forget all the details, but if I'm not too drastically mistaken there
is a chance that there's a NAT in there somewhere.  I.e. ping may well
fail, depending on the NAT implementation, where a TCP connection works.

In any case, the safest test is HTTP, or at least "telnet -n N.N.N.N 80"
or similar.
