Pinging times out with new desktops
Posted on 2005-03-16
I recently upgraded the network over to windows server 2003. We have 2000 pro desktops, as well as XP pro.
I get request timed out messages when trying to ping the new xp desktops. We have an older desktop that is running xp pro, and I am able to ping that computer with replies, but none of the other xp machines will reply. ALL of the 2000 desktops will reply, as well as the server. The server is able to resolve the name and point it to the proper IP when I ping the client machine. The connection is running the windows firewall, but even if I turn the Windows Firewall off on the client side, I am unable to ping the xp machines.
How do I go about getting the new xp machines to reply to a ping request?
Thanks in advance.
