Hi All,

All the workstations In one of our classrooms are not able to ping each other.  I turned off the firewall and then was able to ping it from another workstation.  Is there an inbound rule that needs to be set to allow a workstation to be pinged?  If so, please advise.

All the workstations were cloned so if I could fix one that should fix all.

Thank you in advance.

you need to allow ICMP in the firewall rules.

is there any particular reason you need them to ping each other?

Thank you.

I'm new at this and was tasked to get ip address, host name and MAC for each workstation in the classrooms.  The way I gather this information is by using the command prompt:

1. net view - gives me a list of computer host name.
2. ping host name   - I get ip
3. arp -a [ip address] - I get MAC.

I do all this from one workstation.  Then, I copy the data into excel and match everything up.  Could you suggest a better faster way without any 3rd party application?
