I can browse and access the internet and ping ip address from the terminal but cannot ping that address from any other computer on the domain.

I have recently joined a server to the domain, i notinced that it has been assigned an IP address that can be pinged from the terminal but i cannot ping that address from any other workstation. wondering on what could it be. any help would again be appreciated.

ISA is a prolific firewall that needs rules to allow other clients the ability to ping the server. If you are using ISA, as X-reagent says, check your firewall.

So to add on to what X-Reagent was saying, If you are using ISA, google search ISA rules for ping.

OK:

Here is the information I was looking for:

There is a way to edit IPsec policies by using a GPO. This includes prevent from being pinged. You might want to read this article on setting IPsec policies using GPO's. Especially if you inhereted this Domain. Some administrators prefer you not able to ping the servers. That can help reduce port scanners and hackers from seeing the server.
