    Your private IP can be pinged externally unless it's publicly routable 10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x and 169.254 are not routable publicy. If your were doing this internally then it's as expected.

      is company.com your AD domain name? If so company.com resolves to your DCs. It's normal and cannot be changed without splitting your dns namespace.
