Can't ping or access Windows XP Pro machine on the network
Posted on 2004-09-01
I have an XP Pro machine service pack 1 that can't be pinged, and it's shared folders can't be accessed, even with permission enabled for everyone. It can ping other machines, and access network shares itself, although access is pretty slow at times. It's set for dynamic IP and dns, which works fine, and it always shows up in the list of other pc's on the network, just can't be logged into. Here's what I've tried so far:
--updated ethernet driver
--experimented with other network cables and jacks I knew to be working fine with other machines
--reset the tcp/ip stack, released and renewed the ip.
--made sure XP internet firewall was disabled
--made sure I didn't have tcp filtering set.
--changed to a static address, then back to dynamic with no luck.
We have two 2003 Domain controllers. No switches, hubs, routers etc. between this machine and the rest of the machines on the domain. I have NOT unjoined it and rejoined it to the domain, but wanted to get some feedback before I did so.
Thanks in advance for any jewels of wisdom
