comment ping fails but ssh succeeds
I guess my Windows firewall is disabled. But that should allow me to perform all activities on the network right?? I do have an external firewall whose configuration I don't have access to.

comment ping fails but ssh succeeds
@Silverfire: Thanks, that does make sense. Unfortunately, I don't think I have access to the firewalls, so won't be able to check the same. Is there anyway to find out whether a port is blocked?? From command line for windows?? Also, can you please frame you comments as an answer?? It clarifies most of my questions and I'll accept it

comment ping fails but ssh succeeds
@Silverfire: Thanks a lot for the reply. It makes things clearer to me. However I do have another app which is using another port (non-SSH). Even that app cannot connect. Could it be that everything is kinda blocked?? And that ssh has some special privileges?? Or the firewall rules allow the ssh port to be unblocked???

comment ping fails but ssh succeeds
I've provided the details in the questions. Don't think I can do much with the firewall as it is for a network. Is there any way I can confirm the firewall issue from my side?? Also why would ssh succeed?? Would it be excluded from the same??

I've added the information to the question. Due to the external firewall, I'm not sure if it will answer your questions. If you do have any explanations for such behavior (ssh connects and ping fails), please provide some details on the same.

I'm sorry about being so generic. I'm new to this and will provide as much information as I can. I've added some info to the question. Please let me know if you require more information. I'm looking at understanding the behavior.
