How is it possible that I can ping the server, but the server cannot ping a workstation
Posted on 2009-07-07
I have about 70 computers on a internal domain. The server is a windows 2000 server. Most work stations are windows 2000, 10 XP and 2-3 vista.
I am trying to trouble shoot some network issues. I have found 1 bad switch and have replaced it with a new one. In many ways our connection issue has resolved itself.
But the big mystery that I need help with is this:
The work station can ping the server with 0% loss now. It has to go through 4 or 5 switches to get to the server. The server has 100% loss pinging the work station that I just pinged it from. So it is going through the same set of switches.
The firewalls are off.
How can this be?? Is it possible that there is still a bad switch?
I am stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
