Scenario

My Machine - Windows 10
Server - Server 2008 R2 (Test Box)

I can RDP into the server without issue but am unable to ping or map a network drive a created share. ICMP v4 has been configured under admin, I have even turned the firewall off but am still unable to ping or map.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

How do you turn off the firewall?
At the client or at the server?
By default, when the file server role is installed at the server, the required port (445) will be opened automatically.

Please tell me if any third party firewall software / securiity software with firewall components is installed at the server. Best would be to uninstall those for a test.

Thanks for your comment.

I turned it off server side to test. now back on. As for any third party software, there isnt any. Just weird that I can RDP but cant ping or set a mapped network drive to a shared drive even though ICMP v4 is enabled.

Look, I had asked "how did you turn it off", because it matters. Stopping the service will not lead to expected results. Use the firewall GUI to turn it off. The check, if the service named "server" is still running at the server.
"Just weird that I can RDP but cant ping or set a mapped network drive" - these are totally different things and are independent, no, it is not weird.

Can you check whether file services role is installed?

And the server service? If it is running, do another test at the client
1 open appwiz.cpL
2 go to windows features and install "telnet client"
3 open a command prompt and launch
telnet servername 445

What is the result? The screen should go black if successful.
