Is this some sort of Linux feature ?
Normally ping should work over an IP address, not a port.
If you want to make sure that the right application is listening on that 
port, you should do a telnet and look at the reply


On windows, if you get a blank screen with the title equal to (for 
example)  "c:\winnt\system32\telnet" then you got a succesfull reply.
On Unix, you should get something like

bash-2.03$ telnet 80
