    Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) ? Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since "Ping" is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation.

    what can i do?

    Are you behind a firewalled router at all?

    Excellent question. Have the same situation here. In that case, Testsoso, it is not your PC based FW that is failing the test but your router that is most likely responding.

    Yeah its possible that your router is responding to the requests. You will need to check out your routers rules and see whats there.
