Ping / Windows Firewall

by

Problem : I’m on a network (same subnet) and I can’t ping a Windows XP Pro machine even from the server.

Solution : Go to Firewall settings (properties on NIC, Advanced Tab, Settings, Advanced Tab, (for the 2nd time), ICMP button). Tick the Allow echo request and that’s it.

If you want to be more specific to the NIC then before you click on the second Advanced tab, click on the NIC you want to configure and then click on settings. You’ll get more choices, like Remote Desktop, File and Printer sharing and also get the ICMP tab if you still want to get pings or not for the specific NIC.
