Question is from certkiller.com
A company uses XP as their OS. From a client PC you want to connect to a file server but fail. Your peer on the saem subnet can connect connect successfully.
You ping yourself with 127.0.0.1 and it is successful. What do you do next.
- Ping another host on the same subnet.
- Re-install TCP/IP
- Check NIC
- Ping Microsoft web site
The answer = Ping another host on the same subnet.
1) Why do you need to ping another host on the same subnet if u know you can connect to the file server from a different pc. Or am i getting it confused
2) Also what is the difference between: "same hub" and "same subnet"
3) And what is the difference between a Peer and Host
