NO Ping

NO Ping

This is Strange -
ONE Machine on the network can ping everything - but can't recieve a ping - or should I say that it doesn't respond to a ping command.

Here is the info -
1.  Small network with 2 servers running Server 2003.
2.  15 Computers on the network.
3.  1 Server acts as the DNS and DHCP server.  Which point to the computer perfectly.
4.  The computer that is having this issue is an XP pro machine and is identical to two other machines on the network.
5.  I have turn off the Windows Firewall option.
6.  I have replaced the nic card and have the same results.

I have tried everything that I can think of -
ran a winsock fix program
changed nic cards
made sure the settings where identical to another machine on the network.(the only difference that I can see is that the computer with the problems say 'hybrid' node type and the others don't.


RE: NO Ping

right-click the connection in Network Connections, Properties.

Click the Advanced tab, and make exceptions for ICMP echo at the very least.

If not using the XP SP2 firewall, it is a fireall setting for ICMP traffic on whatever firewall you are using.
