Ping Issue From Server

Q: Ping Issue From Server

I can successfully ping the server from an XP Pro PC by using either the IP or the DNS server name. However, from the server, I am unable to ping the same PC using the IP address. What could be wrong? Could the PCs be blocking a Ping response?

Preferred Solution: Ping Issue From Server

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Ping Issue From Server

Check the firewall settings for your ICMP choices. To respond to a ping you must enable an echo of ICMP requests through the firewall.

from controller.


I can ping controller from server but can't ping server from controller.

Can someone please tell me culprit or what to check when this happens?

Check firewall if blocking ports?
Is IP address static or dynamic?
Is there something wrong with the switch or cable?
Any other command line in cmd to check?

I am not sure what else?
Thank you

We have a strange situation, let me know if anyone has any suggestions or experience with this. Our exchange server can't ping (ip or hostname) our domain controller. But the domain controller can ping our exchange server without a problem. The exchange server is working fine and can ping anything else on the network. Both servers are on the same subnet, connected to the same gigabit blade on the same Cisco 4507 switch. Neither one of them have any type of windows or 3rd party firewall. We noticed our exchange server is unable to update the GPO from the DC.
Any ideas??

A:Can't ping a server on same subnet from another server

So I take it the exchange server is a DC? Is it a global catalog?

First thing that comes to mind is dns records... Check on both servers to ensure there's no orphaned dns records with either servers name with the wrong ip address...

Run nslookup on both servers and check the results.

Client of mine can ping email server, and browse (there is a web interface for web mail) same server via IE, but OE claims it cannot find server.

Deleted cookies, emptied cache, rebooted, disabled firewall & anti-virus, dang OE keeps claiming the server isn't out there despite the evidence otherwise.

Any other ideas?

I have a windows 2008 server and a set of computers that are running mostly Win10. We had a blackout for about 10 minutes. Since the black out several of the computers no longer list the server in the network list.

Yes I did several reboots of everything and they did not change anything. I did an ipconfig and found the server address and pinged it on the computers that don't have it listed. It pinged fine.

Some of the computers do list the server and access it fine. Everything else on the network runs normal just some computers do not list the server in their list.

Any help on fixing this problem is greatly appreciated. Please not I am not an IT person but can get my way around. If you send me fairly straight forward directions on what to do I can do it.

I greatly appreciate your help in this matter.
Thank you

what steps can i take to recognize dns on the server?

A:Can't ping dns server

I'm afraid I don't understand your question...

If you can't ping your DNS server, then you'll have to contact your ISP to get the address of another one, or there is something more critical wrong with your configuration (perhaps preventing you from pinging anything.)

Please let us know what's happening and what you're asking.

I keep loosing internet connectivity and when I hit diagnose and repair it comes back telling me that it cannot reach my DNS server?. Please help I am running Vista Home Premium

A:Can't ping DNS Server

whats the make and model of the router
whos your ISP
you may need to add the ISP DNS server IP address into the router (can be a common issue on some routers)
or if you cant get the DNS Server IP there are public ones available
google for example http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/ also show how to configure onto a PC

before you do that
do the following pings when the system is working - you will get an IP address returned for google (make a note)
then when it disconnects re do all the pings tests - including the one for google or even put the google ip address into a web browser and see if google is returned
If google comes up from the IP address but not from typing in the name - then that is a DNS issue

{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

Hi, I've got a Window7 Pro SP1 64bit that I'm trying to wireless map to a Samba share on a Ubuntu Server. I've read numerous posts online and have done the following without any success yet:

Both enabled and disabled Network Discovery... doesn't appear to make a difference.
Changed Local Group Policy, Network Security LAN Manager Authentication Level to Send LM and NTLM - use NTLMv2 if session security if negotiated... but it has changed itself to Send LM and NTLM responses whenever I have checked it.
I've tried using both the \\Server IP\share directory and \\Server name\share directory in the Computer>Right Click context menu... Map Network Drive dialog boxes. My most recent error message there is A device attached to the system is not functioning.
I've also tried using Net Use on the Command Line both ways. I've gotten two different error messages... error 53, and error 64.

I have a Windows7 Home Premium SP1 64bit computer networked to the Samba share, and it works fine.

These two computers are in the same WORKGROUP.

Thanks in Advance for any help on this...

A:Can ping Server but can't map drive

In Local Policies > Security Options, check the following:

MS network server: digitally sign comm (always) : disable

Hi folks,

I seem to have an Outlook Expre$$ problem where I can receive mail but not send it. I get an error message stating that my smtp host cannot be found (error code 0x800CCC0D).

Looking on the MS OE site as per this link http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;274456 it suggests pinging the POP3 server, but I'm thinking that my POP3 server must be working OK as my mail is coming in allright - can I in some way ping the SMTP server to test this in a similar way - any guidance much appreciated!

Hello everyone!

Recently i changed internet service provider and i went up to a 24 Mbps line, though i can only reach a 8 Mbps service due to my location.

The problem is that surfing the internet has gone all kinds of wrong. Every page takes at least 20 secs to open and the response to online games has the same, or even more, delay. Checking my emails also takes quite some time.
I tried connecting through the ethernet cable & the wireless connection(not at the same time). I even tried making a static ip. Same results, i can't seem to browse.

So when i get to my router's(alcatel-lucent cellpipe 7130) page and hit diagnostics i get the "can't ping primary DNS server" and i'm guessing that's the problem?? But i don't know how to fix it. I tried the troubleshooting suggestions of turning off the router waiting for a couple seconds then turn it back on and press the reset button but still nothing.

I can download and upload just fine, like a 8Mbps line that i'm suppose to have.
And i connect to the same router from an Ipad and the browsing from the Ipad is just fine. The pages open instantly!

Any suggestions??

I had SharePoint running on a Windows 2003 Server but due to an upgrade had to deploy it to a new Windows 2008 Server. The old server is called ACHSP. I thought the simplest thing would be to setup the new server and call it ACHSPNEW. When I was ready to move over to it I changed the old from ACHSP to ACHSPOLD and chenged the IP address to something different. I then changed the name of ACHSPNEW to ACHSP and changed the IP details to that of the original server. Now I can ping my new server by IP address but not by its DNS name()ACHSP).

Have I missed something?

I have a local server where the Server name is setup with the server IP address.
I can ping the server name or the IP address from my Win/10 PC.
I also connect to several other companies using a VPN connection.
When I am connected to one of the VPNs, I can no longer ping to my server name, only my server IP Address.
It tries to connect to the name of my server followed by a dot and another VPN connection name.
I was told by the server group that this a Windows issue and must be in my DNS setting within Network sharing.
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to resolve this?

Hello. I have a W2K server that was working like a charm. Then I switch the router it uses to connect to the internet and now there is no connection. It gets an IP address through the router's DHCP, but I can't ping the router. I've even renewed the ip address and it is able to pick one up, presumably from the router.

I can ping the loopback address.
The server is running everything from ISA, to IIS, RRAS and IAS. It also serves as the DHCP and DNS server for the lan. Essentially, everything you'd have on an enterprise level server cluster is on this one, iddy-biddy server (it's a test environment.).

Help please! I'm lost.

I cannot ping server from a remote computer by host name or direct ip address., Server can ping remote computer. Server is accepting ping from other computers on network? Any help appreciated.

A:Can't ping server with ip address

This could be complicated as it appears at first glance to be a routing issue, or a Firewall issue.
You mentioned this is a remote computer.. how are you connecting to the server? VPN?

If Firewall issue:
Something is denying ICMP traffic leaving the server network or coming in from the remote computer.

If a routing issue:
The Server knows how to route to your computer, but your computer doesn't know how to route to the server.
If using Windows, try running in cmd:
tracert (ip address or hostname without parenthesis)
Example1: tracert google.com
Example2: tracert

If Example2 works, but not example 1, you have a DNS issue - most likely you are asking public DNS servers to resolve the non-public name of the server, which of course, won't work. You'll need to modify the DNS servers on your computer while using (assuming) VPN to use the Internal DNS servers at the location your server is at. Usually the errors will say something about hostname not resolvable.

There is a server in my shared student house. The server is using FreeNAS and there are 3 other people that can connect to it succesfully using Mac OS/X, Ubuntu and Win 7 respectively. I have win XP SP3, and when I click on "network places" and "view workgroup computers", I can see the shared server called "Nas". Within the server there is a shared folder called "Movies" however when I click on the server name to access this shared folder(s), I get the following message:

"\\Nas is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found."

I can ping the server succesfully and I can access the freeNas webgui quite freely but for some reason I just can not view the shared folder yet everyone else can. The Win 7 user also has shared folders on his pc that are also visible in the workgroup but its the same story - I get the same message when I try to click on it to view the shared folder(s).

I am running a dedicated server for Medal of Honor Allied Assault: Breathrough (MOHAAB). All I play is on LAN with computers in the same room or area. For months, the ping has been fine, usually around 0-10 for me (with the server running on the same computer). The other players all had fine ping too.

Now, suddenly (it happend first yesterday), my ping on my own server is horrible. When I first start it is in the low 100s, and drops to around 50, where it stays consistently. I have no idea why this is happening. I made no changes to internet or hardware. The server is exactly the same as it was a week ago when it worked fine. So I have no idea what is causing it to perform so poorly.

I ran the dslreport speed test, and here are my results:

Hi! So here's what's happening to me.
I set up a Windows 8.1 computer to act as a VPN server (using Window's built in PPTP server) so that I could connect to my home network when I am elsewhere and be able to access shared folders in that network. I set up the server and everything seemed to work fine. I created a new incoming connection, checked the "Through the Internet" box, made sure IPv6 wasn't selected and disabled the automatic DHCP thing and replaced it with a range of IP's. I could connect to it a my external IP on the client machine changed to my home IP, but I couldn't see all of my network shares.
None showed up under the "Network" tab in Windows Explorer, but I could access some by manually typing in the IP, fine by me. But I also had shared folders that were on the computer acting as the VPN server, and I couldn't access those. I tried to ping the VPN server but nothing. I could ping other machines in the network but the ping request would always time out when I tried to ping the VPN server. The server could ping the client computer but the reverse wasn't working.

I can't seem to figure out why this is happening, I tried searching around online but I found a lot of people that did something that solved it but that when I do it, nothing changes.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Also on the first page of the properties for each account that you set up there is a check box to indicate if the account should be included. Personally, I prefer to do it manually.

A:Ping failure preferred DNS server

If your ISP have detected problems at the exchange, then it would be unwise to start altering any router or computer configuration until those have been resolved.

I'm not sure why the computer didn't recognize the valid cmd of ipconfig /all - unless you had mistyped it - so perhaps you could have other underlying problems, but have a read through these pre-posting network requirements and supply what you can Pre-posting Requirements - for both Wired and Wireless Connectivity Issues

I've been dealing with this issue for hours now and have tried everything I can think of. I have a Windows 10 Home PC that I have an incoming VPN connection on. I can connect to it, but if the firewall is enabled, I can't ping it or access the shares. If I turn the firewall off I CAN ping and access shares. It was working fine yesterday and I don't remember doing anything to cause this. I've tracked it down to being something with my Public networks. When I disable the firewall on public networks (the VPN adapter) I can ping, but once I enable that it stops pinging. I've tried everything listed below but still can't get it to work:
Checked port 1723 is openAllowed EVERYTHING with a firewall rule, through itChecked multiple devices on another Wi-Fi network and 3G with a phoneRestarted PC; other devices and routerI can ping every other device on my network besides the one creating the VPN (which is the one I need)and so many other steps.Made sure file and printer sharing were enabled in network and sharing center

Is there some other rule that got removed from the firewall I need to re-add? Any help or tips would be appreciated!

I have an internet connection. Static IP is designated to my PC, and the internet comes from a LAN cable. To connect to the internet, i have to login into the server of the ISP from a login software installed on my PC. After that,i am able to surf the internet.

A strange problem has been occurring since quite some days. I am unable to ping the server to which i login to. But still, i am able to login to the server, and i am able to surf the net without any problems. What can be the reason behind not being able to ping the server? Packets sent and received are also being shown, but not able to ping.

Pinging the server helps me diagnose if the server is alive or not. Sometimes my net would stop working, and then i could ping the server and test the connection. Or, if the connection was breaking frequently, then i could check the ping, and see if the ping was breaking, and i could call up the ISP and tell about the problem. But since i am not able to ping the server, its difficult to diagnose.

Also, since quite some months, i am facing another problem. I am able to surf the internet without any problems using the browser. But, if i use irc chat, i experience very frequent connection breaks. The connection would break, then within a few seconds, the connection would be up again, and my irc would be connected again.

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?!?

I have a 3.51 server that is a memeber of a domain. I can successfully ping this server using its hosts name from a workstation on the same domain in the same office area. When I move this workstation to a seperate area in the office I can only successfully ping the server using its IP address. I am unable to connect to any of its resources (Network not found).

I can however still connect/ping the host name of the other servers on the same domain and in the same location as the faulty server.

Any comments gratefully received.

A:Unale to ping Server using its Host name

Are you using a name resolution server such as WINS or DNS or are you relying on broadcasts to resolve? Is there any hardware devices (routers) between the server and the new location of the workstation?

I have a client with an XP machine that is required to ping one of our server at a different location for a license verification but is unable to. The client is able to browse for files on the server over the network but cannot ping it. Any idea what might cause this? Thanks



A:PC can view files on server but can't ping it.

The network administrator may have blocked the ICMP request (ping) to prevent attacks so that's normal. For example, you cannot ping msn.com but you can surf to it.

If the IP address is not an internal one (10.x.y.z, 172.15-32.x.y, or 192.168.x.y) try it at home and see if you get the same results.

On the same token it may be a firewall issue on the client's side.

Hello New here, I wanted to ask what could the problem be with my ping. I live in the Boston area and when I run a speed test on servers in boston my ping ranges anywhere from 35-100+ Some might say 35 ping isnt high but it seems way too high considering the server is less than 15 miles away.

A little info: I have a router/modem and a modem by itself. For some reason the apartment I live in isnt capable to just use a modem/router combo so the verizon person says. I use a laptop hooked up to the router via cable, I never run wirelessly. My laptop is old and the average temperature of it is around 100 degrees lol.. I was wondering if the heat could be causing a problem with the cpu because my friend tells me that it DOES have an effect on networking/ping if it is slow.

Here is a speedtest I just tested. http://www.speedtest.net/result/2938914787.png

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide

A:High ping on server app. 12 miles away

Because the responding server is only 12 miles away, doesn't mean you're going to get a direct network path to it. It depends on your ISP and how their network is set up. An extreme example of this is when I had Sprint 3G service. I would be in one state and when I do a speed check on my connection, the app returns that I'm popping out some times one or two states away.

A 35ms (millisecond) latency (NOT PING) is not bad. If you're getting 100 or more ms delay, then something is going on. If it persists, I would contact your ISP. While it is true CPU loading can affect network performance, it's highly doubtful that your CPU load is that high. If it were, you would be complaining about everything being generally slow.

A:[HELP] Clients can't ping/connect to server but server can ping/connect to clients


The security programs may affect the connection between windows 7 and DNS server.
I would suggest you to disable all the security programs and firewall to check the issue.

Also, check if the clients can ping each other successfully.

Test it
Clean Boot and
Safe Mode and check if there are conflicts.

Regarding the error information, you may refer to the following articles.

alright here are the facts.
Using Windows Server 2000
setup a VPN server.

Both Intranet and Internet work (i can see and go to the shared folders)

but when trying to PING the VPN server via Internet i get nothing.

For some reason I think it might have to do something with my static Routes...???


A:Cant PING VPN server via internet (can on intranet)

Did you check if your router/firewall allows ping [icmp]? Usually it is disabled by default. Or is this server raw on the internet?
I am assuming when you say via the internet you are actually outside the office and connected via vpn.

I hope someone can give me some help on this one. I work for a small automotive repair shop. We just bought an hp proliant server to run our repair invoice program on. The problem i am having is that I cannot get the server to be able to ping the other computers on the network. I can ping from the other computers to the server though. I need to be able to do this so ican set up the rest of our software. Does anyone know where I might find the problem? By the way, I am running windows xp professional sp2 on the server and windows xp professional sp1 on the other computers.

Good morning,

As title says, I can ping our work server (windows 8 server) as well as connect to it using a remote desktop connection, it just won't map as a network drive.

I had this problem a few days ago, so I tried everything I could think of (dns flush, ip config release/renew, restarting, disconnecting from network drive & re-mapping) and nothing would let me back on. I did a system restore to 2 weeks ago and it works again. So of course then windows wants to do its updates, I let the updates happen and the problem returns.

It seems like the windows updates are the root of the problem, although I have no idea how to hunt down the cause. For now I'll have to restore to before the updates & turn off the updates.

Does anyone know what might be causing this??

A:Windows 8.1 Pro - Can ping server, can't map drive

I'm not sure which update is causing the problem but installing the updates one at a time then rebooting and checking for mapping function would help to locate the problematic update.

Once you find the problematic update you can uninstall that update and then choose to "hide the update" so it can't install again.

I'm on my work's LAN and I use my machine as a web server so I can do some testing with work projects. The problem I'm having is that while I can access my web server (through localhost/ name/ip address) others inside the LAN with me cannot. They can ping my box no problem, but when they try to access it through http, they get Page Cannot Be Displayed.

I've been scouring around now for a bit and cannot resolve this issue. Any thoughts?
