I have two computers. They both run Windows 2000.
I connect them with a twisted cable.
I have installed on both of them:
Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
If I ping from one of them, any of the two, it works.
If I pint from the other one, it only works to ping itself. Pinging the other one does not work.
Can't figure you why.
To clarify even more.
On the computer that can has a problem with tcpip, if I type netstat -a I can see all the servers running.
If I type telnet localhost(or ip adress) port, it tells me that it can not connect.
If I have the same server, running on my other computer, on the same port, and I do the same at a dos
prompt on the other computer, telnet works.
However if I try to telnet from the bad computer to the good one, same port, it tells me it can not
There is a problem on my "bad" computer with how tcp/ip works. However, on the "bad" computer, I can
still ping the bad computer and the good computer.
From the good computer I can ping only the good computer.
Hope that clarifies it a bit.
