I can ping the other comps from the Ticket Server. The other comps can ping the Ticket Server. The same thing applies from the Main Server to the other comps. But the Ticket Server can't ping the Main Server. There's an internet connection on the Main Server, which I use to connect all other comps to the net. But the Ticket Server from the ticket are read doesn't connect to the net. I tried pinging the main but it didn't work out. I use tcp/ip for my network. I use dhcp from the main server(192.168.0.1) so all other comps have auto addresses, but the ticket server has a static address: 192.168.0.1 and I don't use a router or anything.

if your main server has the address 192.168.0.1 and your ticket server's address is 192.168.0.1, they won't be able to talk to each other. check they don't have the same addresses.

check the internal routing table from a command prompt.

from main server
    route print [ticket server IP address]
from ticket server
    route print [main server ip address]

if they don't have routes to each other, enter route from command prompt and see available commands.

you would need something like..
     route ADD 192.168.0.0 MASK 255.255.0.0 [gateway ie
     router/hub/switch] METRIC 3 IF 1

cheers,

cat-fud.

In your reply you stated that the main and ticket both have the same IP address is this a mistype or are they the same ? If they are then each machine needs to have a unique host IP address

try adding an entry to your hosts file
192.168.0.2   "tab"  computer name
should work
