issue with pinging our laptop
Posted on 2006-07-19
Last week, I had a laptop here, and prepared it for a new user at Bradford.
(Win XP SP2, all updates, VNC, etc...)
Sent laptop to our second office.
Asked user at the office to release / renew ipconfig, in order to get rid of IP address from this office here.
New address: 192.168.3.28 - second office DHCP shows this as an active lease to that machine. Default Gateway is also correct. All OK so far.
Laptop can ping second office server (192.168.3.1) - OK.
If we go the reverse way and second office server tries to ping computer name or ip address, always gets Request timed out.
Any idea as to why this is happening...??
