PC can't ping

27 New Member
Hi guys,

I've got this PC on my network. I can access everything on it on the network but I can't ping it. I tried pinging with the computer name and the IP adress aswell but It just doesn't want to ping. I can ping other workstations from it but not it.

What's happening here Guys??

Do you have a firewall installed on it? It may be blocking ping.

Yes I do have a firewall installed and then when I go to control panel >> security center >> Windows firewall. Everything is disable there ( greyedout). And on top I see this " Windows firewall is turned off. Your network Administrator is using Group policy to control these settings"

Please explain this to me, please

Your network administrator has decided that

a. You don't need to have Windows Firewall running.
b. They don't want you poking your fingers in and altering these settings.

However if you have a network administrator it may well be worth going and asking them why you can't ping that computer.

Just a question for you but How do you know you have the RIGHT IP to your computer??? I just want to make sure. =)

Hi guy!
I want to ask you that you have any blocked program? I think that you should check for all block program and turn off the block traffic network.
good luck

Enable sharing and simple tcp-ip settings on the workstation and it should work. Go in control panel and under add remove programs you will find Windows components, install tcp-ip and anything related to networking. Your firewall is disabled by default because you are on a domain. Check all your ip settings ipconfig /all in cmd and verify with other addresses on the network.

There is no reason to deny ping to the station unless its WAN.

Best to you,

I had this problem where the firewall was disabled and I could ping other machines and access the internet, but i could not ping (or otherwise connect) to my machine from other machines on my local network.

In my case the problem was a setting with the Cisco VPN Client. Even though it was NOT IN USE when i saw the problem, the solution was to
1. Open the Cisco VPN Client (but you don't necessarily need to connect to anything)
2. Right-click the system tray icon in the bottom right of your toolbar
3. UNCHECK "Stateful firewall (Always On)"
4. Rejoice, for i can once again ping and FTP!

Type net view into command prompt and check that it's name comes up, it is probably something to do with a Software Restriction Policy or some kind of program blocking it.

Hello :) Into group-archive i found most e-mails, which touches PINGing. In my work i've used TELNET for testing if host is operational. Sometimes, for unknown reasons, workstation doesn't respond for PINGing. But in WinNT network, all hosts has a nbsession listening on port 139. I always use this script instead PING command (hope, will be usefull for someone :) ):
