Networking, Connection problem

Given the following situation on 2 Windows machines:

Client:

   IP:       10.14.101.106
   Mask:     255.255.0.0
   Gateway:  10.14.10.10   

   Ping:
     Ping Gateway:   Yes
     Ping Server:    Yes

Open in new window


Server:

   Internal Connection:

      IP:       10.14.100.2
      Mask:     255.255.0.0
      Gateway:  10.14.10.10  

   External Connection:

      DHCP

   Ping:
     Ping Gateway:   Yes
     Ping Client:    No

Open in new window


I should not have the problem of the Server not being able to ping the client

Notice I have 2 connections on the Server

1>  Could this be the problem

2>  How do I tell when I do a ping if it is using the external DHCP 9.9.9.9 address or the
    internal IP address

3>  What should I do next

Should be fine since they're on the same network

Route print from the command prompt and verify what the default route is.  If it's the 9.9.9.9 address' gateway you can modify the routes weight and make the other one the preferred route

3>  What should I do next
Verify there isn't a firewall on the client.  Or at a minimum that it is allowing ICMP echo-reply inbound/outbound.  Check your route table above and make sure the correct route is being used.
