I am having a problem sending ICMP packet through 3COM Router to a HP-Unix computer.

I have 2 networks setup:
There is a 3Com MSR 30-40 router between the two networks.

The HP-Unix computer is currently on the network with an IP address of

I am able to successfully ping the HP-Unix computer from any computer that is located on the network.

I am able to successfully ping the HP-Unix computer while I am connected to the router through telnet.

I am able to successfully ping other windows computers on the network from the network.

There are no Access Lists setup on the router and the firewall is off.

Tracert command shows that it is connecting to the gateway address on the router and then times out.

The address is in the Arp table on the router.
I have tried rebooting the HP-Unix computer and rebooting the router.
I have changed ports on the switch.
I changed the IP address on the HP-Unix computer with no change.
I am not sure why I can ping the HP-Unix computer from any computer on the network, but I am not able to ping it from the Network.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Incorrect default gateway on the HP-UX box

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. The default gateway was showing correctly with the netstat -rvn command, but was incorrect in the netconf configuration file. I edited the configuration file and rebooted. Computer is now replying to ping requests from the network.
