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!

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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>
