All machines run Win95 , are attached to a Novell 3.x server and have tcp/ip installed. There is no problems with the interface of any machines with respect to Novell. Some machines can ping all others on the lan but some can only ping some of the machines and return a "timed out" message. All addresses are from 22.214.171.124(RISC6000) to 126.96.36.199 (my machine with a working dial-up ) and all have a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 The wiring is thinnet and I have moved one of the "bad" machines to a port that has had a machine with full access to all addresses and have the same limited results. What can I do to resolve the limited view of my lan and give all machines the ability to ping each other ? I have changed configs on some machines using the same entries taken from a "good" machine and still have not corrected this problem.
