I have a Windows XP machine connected to the network.
I configured a static IP address. I can ping the same machine with ping loopback or 127.0.0.1 , but when I ping another machine in the network, it gives me the Request Time Out message. first I suspected the cable, but when I put another machine in the same location I managed to ping all other machines in the network. So, I don't know why the other machine can't communicate in the network.
If there is any helpful answer, I will appreciate it.
