client firewall block server access
Posted on 2004-10-16
I have a win2k adv sever runnig AD with couple of winxp client connecting to it.
The network works fine but i have a problme communicating with one of the xp machine.
If i try to ping the name of the machine from the server, it'll give me time out. but it does ping the right IP address.
The client computer can access the server no problem.
Took me quite sometimes to figure out where the problem lies.
If i disable the personal firewall on the client machine. I can ping it from the server.
can anyone tell me how do i fix this problem?
