PING via SLiRP is emulated as "UDP echo" on port 7. So can not pinging
behind any firewalls and routers with NAT (Network Address Translation
for local Networks). Also not, if destination don't support "UDP echo"
on port 7. This was that was my incorrect consideration to say "PING
Restrictions: Ping only works for local networks, without firewall,
without NAT-routers and only, if destination accepts "udp echo" (mostly
yes for linux).
