[Firehol-support] ping vs. ICMP

I am using FireHOL to set up the firewall for a standalone server.  I would like do ping to Internet from the server AND ping to the server from Internet.  So I have:

client icmp accept
server icmp accept

It seems to work.  

I'm just wondering what the "ping" service is for?  Should I use that instead of icmp?

Thanks and Regards,
