Problems pinging

By hawksberry ·
I have three computers on my network. One W2K pro, one W98se and one WinXP. The other computers on the networks can not ping the Windows XP machine. The Windows XP machine can ping all computers. Does anyone know why this would be?

Problems pinging

When you say ping, do you mean ping the IP or the Name of the machine?

Can the other machines ping XP by IP address? If not, then make sure the XP machine is in the same workgroup and same subnet as the other machines, and has a unique IP address.

What protocols are you using? You should use only TCP/IP, as the more you have, the more problems you can have.

Any firewalls on any of the machines? If so, disable them.

make sure on your network connection local area network is not firewalled , that use tcp\ip protocol on all pcs related and allways they stay on and wired correctly, you may test each nic card by made a self ping 127.0.0.1

I have the same exact setup. It took a few days to figure out, but I checked the configuration of my firewall(on EACH pc) and found that they were all blocking the internal access from each other. In my case I had to set the firewall on each pc to allow the IP address of the other two to have access. End of problems. Hope this helps.
