Is there a Firewall blocking Ping?

by nrmcewen In reply to unable to ping

Hi

Ping problems often relate to firewalls. If you machine is working ok on the network but it won't ping, perhaps there is a firewall on the machine that is blocking the traffic?

Most firewalls block

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to unable to ping

ping (ICMP) by default, a lot of switch configs won't pass it on either.
Can't say what it is from here, but my first guess would be windows firewall on the target machine given you can hit the gateway.

by cchandima In reply to unable to ping

Check your DNS server and try to ping from the DNS server..If not..again reconfigure your IP address on that machine again...Then Try to ping for the loop back address..If ok try for out sider like GOOGLE or YAHOO..Then send me the situation..I'l back with you...

Clearly, you don't have networking set up for the VM.

by seanferd In reply to unable to ping

That is where your problem is. Of course, it would have been sensible to mention this first, rather than the now obviously irrelevant information in the original post.

If you built the image yourself, you probably need to rebuild it with the appropriate VMWare tools. If you downloaded the image, make sure it has networking included. If it does, you probably need to adjust the network settings for VMWare while the VM is running. (And save that session on exit.)

You have to explicitly enable networking for a VM !

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to unable to ping

Read the instructions, and carefully, you can bugger up your 'real network' it won't know that it's a VM.
Could have saved yourself a lot of f'ing about by mentioning that by the way.....
