ping a probe?

Is a ping the same as a probe?if i go to another pc in an internet cafe and ping my ip from command will it be like a probe on the firewall.?

A ping of your ip from an internet cafe will just say that your ip address is on the internet and responds to a ping request. If you have a decent NAT router you can even turn off the ping reply on your ip address to try and hide further.
So depending upon your router when you ping from the internet cafe you may or may not get a response.

You may also go to www.grc.com and run shields up. Part of it’s test if you read closely is to see if you reply to a ping.
