Offhand, I don't think that it is "turnoffable". I think it is part of the
base protocol, like if TCP is up, then ping works, if TCP is broken, ping
don't work. There is no entry in the service table for it so it is not on a
port so you could turn it off. Additionally, since all the doc says to
verify, ping, I would think my first statement is true.
