Hi,

i just configured a windows 7 64bit pc on the domain. this is my first 64bit pc, im trying to ping it and there is no reply.

also i cant ping it from a server or other computers.

the computer can access the network, internet and ping the domains.

i do have other windows 7 pc's but they are all 32bit's.

please shine some light if possible.

1. disable firewall on this machine.
2. disable IPv6 and check.

are you pinging with ip or name... can you try to ping by ip of the machine..

That is not related to 64 or 32bit OS at all. Check if the Windows Firewall allows incoming pings (ICMP); for testing purposes, switch it off (do not stop the service!) to see if it is the culprit.

Does the hostname resolve on the network?

Also just a note if you do disable IPv6 make sure you reboot as it can and does kill the IPv4 network when disabled without reboot.

Checked the NAT settings on the firewall?
