Machine does not respond to ping request, but it has a working network connection!

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Hank Eisenstein, Feb 5, 2004.

  1. I've run into an issue several times with Windows XP machines where the
    machine is connected to the network, can see all other machines on the
    network, but it cannot be seen by them. It will not respond to ping
    requests, either.
    I've looked into everything I can think of, starting with drivers and even
    replacing my switch. I have no firewall software installed, and I have
    verfied that Window's Internet Connection Firewall is disabled.

    Any ideas?

    Can it ping the other computers?

    Ummm.. It IS running TCP/IP, isn't it? I know, NetBEUI isn't part of
    XP by default, but you CAN get it there if you try.. :)

    Post your TCP/IP settings for the wonky XP box and one of the good XP
    boxes. (At a command prompt, type "ipconfig /all".)

    Cheers,

    Quick question.. These are both XP Pro boxes, yes? The hankxp box is
    set to pick up an address through DHCP, while the svrhank box has a
    static IP assigned. I would suggest changing it to DHCP and see how
    that works. If you need a static IP on it we can always change it
    back. Just doing some troubleshooting.

    Cheers,
    dan

  6. No, SVRHANK is a Windows 2003 box. My other DHCP clients function just
    fine. Incidently, I did some more testing. The machine is pingable, until
    Windows loads. Still weird.

    I had a similar situation in a W2003 server. Any network PCs (XP or W98) do not receive response when pinging the server. The server receives normal response when pinging any of the PCs. Also the server services can't be used from the PCs, or sometimes can be partially used, i.e. Remote Desktop can't be used; from an XP, Managing the server is partially available; server shares or shared printers need an extra user/password to be connected. From the server sometimes www is not available; any other function seems normally. I suspect some spy programs that were removed using SpyBot, couldn't find a better explanation after hours of investigation.

    firewall enabled

    Hi

    I had the same issue. My XP could ping my w2003, but my w2003 could not ping XP.

    On XP, I had to open windows firewall through the command "firewall.cpl" and disable the firewall. After that, I had to start the computer browser service.

    Now my w2003 and XP can ping each other.

    Note: When XP is not answering PING, check computer browser service to see if it´s started.

    Non ping windows firewall

    In windows firewall un-check don't allow exceptions. This is like airport mode. This will prevent anything on your system from seeing you. Great if you are out in public networks but completely counter to what you are trying to achieve on a local controlled network.
