I have 3 computers with difference network:

+ Com1: 10.107.101.35
+ Com2: 10.107.11.14
+ Com3: 192.168.59.130

from Com1 I can ping Com2 and Com3
I want to ping from Com2 to Com3 but I cannot, I have run this command in Com2: route add  192.168.59.0 mask 255.255.255.0 10.107.101.35
 
But I still cannot.

Please help me this.

Thanks!

If Com1 is Windows Server 2008 R2, then it does not respond to pings by default - you have to enable this option.

Open a command prompt and type:-

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”ICMP Allow incoming V4 echo request” protocol=icmpv4:8,any dir=in action=allow

Also, can Com2 ping Com3 and can Com3 ping Com2?

Dear Roy,

I ran your command and get this error:

C:\Users\user>netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="ICMP Al
low incoming V4 echo request" protocol=icmpv4:8,any dir=in action=allow

A specified value is not valid.

+ Com1: 10.107.101.35 --> Windows 7
+ Com2: 10.107.11.14 --> Windows Server 2008 R2
+ Com3: 192.168.59.130 --> VMWare ESXi 5

Com2 and Com3 cannot ping together, I want to make comunication between them via COM1.

Thanks!

Did you TYPE the command, or copy and paste it from this post? If you copied and pasted, try  typing it - and make sure that when you do it, yuo are running command prompt with elevated privilieges

Dear sir,

I am sure I am running with elevated privilieges, I run it in Windows 7, and additional information that the firewall has been turned off.


Thanks!

Sorry - I was mis-reading the question. Your route add command doesn't seem 100% to me. You should be using:-

route add 192.168.59.0. mask 255.255.255.0 <ip of the gateway here - not COM1>
