Can't Ping but CAN RDP?
Posted on 2008-10-08
Hi everyone. I have a network with about three different Windows 2003 Servers Std SP2 and we just added a new file server to our network... Windows server 2003 Standard X64 edition SP2. I can RDP into this server all I want but my problem is I can't ping it whatsoever from any machine or other server on my network. If I ping via host name the host name does translate to an IP so I know DNS is working but it times out every time. If I ping by IP it also times out. With this problem I can't really map any shares or do much of anything. Some info that may or may not be of use: We use two subnets... the servers and routers are all on one subnet and users (Macs, PC's and laptops) are on a different subnet, Can't ping from either.
Here's what I have tried.
Disabled the Windows Firewall service (even though the firewall is not on), of course rebooted the server, even messed around with turning on the firewall and allowing ICMP requests... still nothing. (The Windows Firewall is currently not on). I don't know what else to do. This is driving me to drink!
Any help is appeciated.
