Cannot ping 2003 server R2 by IP address, only by name
Posted on 2006-04-03
recently purchased a new Dell server with Win 2003 R2 pre-installed. The
server seems to be operating fine with one exception, that now has a 3rd
party app not working properly.
You cannot ping the server's IP address from any machine on the network, it
just times out. You can ping the server by name and it responds just fine.
I need to be able to ping by IP as well and cannot seem to make this work.
Windows Firewall is not even turned on.
Is there something that R2 does to limit this or something?
All my other 2003 servers can be pinged by name or IP and respond just fine.
