Cannot ping windows 2003 server from windows vista

Hi folks, I'm attempting to setup a Windows 2003 domain, but my main machine cannot see the server.

Both are on the same network/subdomain 192.168.0.x

The server can ping 192.168.0.27 (Vista PC)
But the vista PC cannot ping the server (192.168.0.26)

The PC can ping another computer on the same network, as can the server.

I have disabled Norton Firewall and the Windows firewall on the vista PC... Any ideas

Is Windows firewall enabled on the server?

By default Windows firewall prevents ICMP traffic when improperly configured.

Norton firewall does the same thing, I just don't know the settings.

I know what you mean, but the link is for Windows XP, not server 2003... But the PC won't connect and collect domain information either :(

No, norton firewall isn't on the server, just on the Vista PC :)

That seemed to fix the ping issue, but now cannot get connected to the domain...

Windows firewall also blocks the LDAP port, port 389.

Anyone have that info off the top of their head? I have to look it up.
