window 2000 professional not pinging my window 98 system.


We someone help me resolve this problem. I have window 2000 professional, windows 98 and Unixware 7.0.1 on the network. I was able to establish connection with all. However, l was unable to ping window 98 from window 2000 professional. I was able to ping the window 2000 from the window 98. I could also ping the unix box from any of the windows systems. My problem now is that l can't ping from the window 2000 professional to the window 98. What can really cause this problem?

one of your windows systems is mis-configured.

i wish i could give more help but your gonna have to ask on a windows specific board. this forum is really for windows & dos issues RELATING to unix... someone here though may be able to give you a hand.

Hi ,

thats happens a lot on windows environment , check cable and make sure switch is workin aight too . if those 2 are checked good then try un-installing network driver at windows 2000 then restart then re-install nic driver , coz u said u were able to ping before . make sure also u dont have an IP conflict . Also try pinging the card by itself make sure u dont have lost packets heres the command ping loopback or ping standard nic loopback test to ensure that the card did not break .

regards ,

or ping standard nic loopback test to ensure that the card did not break .
AFAIK, loopback is software driven not hardware. maybe in windows this is different however.

yes on all windows environment we actually use ping loopback or to test the nic it self if it is good.
or u can actually ping what ever ip u assigned ur card. this loopback test is good when there running dchp server no need to look for its ip.

My Hub is okay. The cables are also okay.
I have tried pinging the lookback on all the three systems and have a reply. Also I have tried pinging its assigned IP address with also a reply. However, what is surprising is that the window 98 can ping the window 2000 professional why the professional can't ping window 98.

For instance under the network neigborhood the system can be seen.

hi ,

ok so we know the card works . are u using static IP ? is this running on a domain ? if it is workgroup make sure that u assigned ip to all three computers they should have the same ip sequence and also the workgroupname should be the same .
u can use netbui protocol also if u want it to network too.
