IP Address, Can Ping but can't be pinged
I have a laptop with an unusual problem. The laptop is running Windows XP Sp2. The NIC is a 3COM wireless PC card.

The laptop is on the network and has an internal network address. It is able to browse the internet. It is able to ping any computer or server within our domain via IP address or DNS name. It is able to ping itself both via IP address, DNS name and loopback.

The problem: This laptop cannot be seen or pinged by any other computer on the network. This means that it cannot be connected to remotely via remote desktop, via VNC or via UNC.

Windows Firewall is turned off. The NIC has been uninstalled and reinstalled. The 3COM wireless card has been uninstalled and reinstalled. TCP/IP was reinstalled. Winsock has been cleared and reset. A repair install of Windows was performed.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas?

Any other third party software installed? E.G. any security suites?

If your not sure run belarc and post the list of installed apps (minus any keys it provides) and we can let you know if any contain firewalls.

Is belarc an internal windows command or software that must be downloaded? I'm not familiar with it either way *blush*

Belarc - www.Belarc.com go to the downloads its a small little app that returns a bunch of machine information. Just copy and past the applications section (minus the keys).

Thumbs up May be a firewall problem!
Is there any firewall installed on the system?

Hrmmm I am not seeing anything that has a firewall on it. When you say the firewall is turned off have you gone in and disabled the service completely? or just turned it to off?

I've tried it both ways with the same result. Right now, I currently only have it turned to off via Control Panel > Windows Firewall. However, I did previously disable the Windows Firewall Service.

That shouldn't matter because they all are on the LAN so technically nothing is "inbound". I did have a thought can you also describe the hardware on the network maybe your running through 2 routers or something?
