Cannot ping local system by machine name IP address

Hello,

I am having a particular problem with a system in my test environment. ( call it Machine A) . I can ping other Machines from Machine A but no one can ping Machine A. Machine A cannot Ping itself using its FQDN or IP address. Machine A gets successful results when pinging 127.0.0.1.
I have tried to flush DNScache and did a IPCONFIG /release and /renew still with no luck in regards to pinging itself successfully. Any help is appreciate with this.

Actually, I have noticed this behavior on a few workstation, but didn't spend any time looking at it.  I will check into it today, and if this question has not been resolved, I will post the results

Hello,

This isue has been resolved as there were mutiple firewalls enabled on this system. I haad veirfied that the local XP firewall was disabled but this system had other firewalls enabled unbeknownst to me. I will award the points to ashutosh_kumar for assisitng me with my oversight.
