IP Ping works one way but not the other. Cableing question.
Posted on 2006-10-31
I have a couple of computers on my network which cannot be reached by a simple 'ping' command.
(All firewalls are off.)
They are able to ping everything on the network, and recieve their DHCP from the DC with no problem. In fact, they are in use constantly and function without any problems.
However, I can not get any ping response from them.
I have narrowed down the 'problem' computers to this: They are all connected to recent cable drops, and I must confess that I ran the cables myself.
My question is this:
Is it possible for an incorrect wiring to cause this? I assumed that bad wiring would either fail completely, or cause packet storms.
I consitantly used T568B wiring conventions. If anyone can give me some pointers on what I may have done wrong, I would appreciate it.
