    Once again, a real newbie here.

    I have configured a "new" computer for our workgroups network. All seems to work OK, but if I try the following command from the main server:
    C:\Documents and Settings\User 1>ping

    Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.

    Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 0, Lost = 2 (100% loss),
    C:\Documents and Settings\User 1>

    What might be causing this problem?

    For more information, please see a related "solved" issue that I posted some days ago entitled:
    "Solved: logical name for the ip address of a node in a Windows XP Worgroup"
    This seems like the inverse problem.

    Thanks for your help.
