Note that no mention is made of the ports issue in this article...

Apparently, this is not possible unless RPC port 135 and the dynamic ports are open between the MS and the GW. After the initial bind on 135, Gateway requests the MS to connect to the Endpoint on a different port. Microsoft Case 117062115925474 refers.
Note that this defeats the entire object of being able to ping from the GW. If you have to open all those ports you might as well ping from the MS. What is required is the instruction to ping be passed from the MS to the GW via existing open port 5723
