Unable to ping EnB, PGW, SGW from my LTE UE

I am unable to ping my EnB, PGW through ping application.. It says request timed out but thing is I am able to see Request-Reply packets in wireshark captures. Not getting any idea on what is going wrong.

Please suggest some inputs.

The user plane traffic is encapsulated in the GTP tunnel, as such the UE should be unaware of the SGW/PGW/EnB. Only if on Gi there are routes towards these elements should the UE actually be able to ping these, but who would want to do that?

Check routing

Agreed with Salil. It is routing issue. Usually this happen in your lab setup. Make sure  UE and PGW should have public IP (Usually IT team provide IP address).

I recently come across advantages of SCTP over TCP and In telecommunication most of the real time interfaces require SCTP connection example eNB to MME.

But MME to SGW and SGW to PGW GTP-C is used as signaling protocol. Why SCTP not being used? What is the advantage of using GTP-C?
