Using a 10.0.0.0 network and its limitations, ping timeout problems
Posted on 2005-03-09
Is there a limit to the number of nodes on a private network?
All our PC's/Servers/Routers use a 10.0.0.0/255.255.255.0 network.
Should we be using a 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 network instead?
We have recently added more nodes and are beginning to experience sparratic ping issues (nodes timing out for 10 seconds or so, then returning requests when using ping 10.0.0.x -t). Where 'x' is the Workstation, router, or Server.
Server A is..
10.0.0.200 (IP Address)
10.0.0.10 (IP Address)
Ping the Server A from Workstaion A (ping 10.0.0.200 -t)
Ping Workstation A from Server A (ping 10.0.0.10 -t)
All requests are returned as expected, however after about 2 mins, or 5, or 3 mins eventually the request will timeout for 3-10 sec. then resume. We have replaced all our switches and have run a cable tester on all our runs, so the cabling is fine. Any input would be apprecated. I can expand on configuration and equiptment if requested.
