Hi,

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 192.168.3.66

Pinging 192.168.3.66 with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 192.168.3.66:
Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 0, Lost = 2 (100% loss),
Control-C
^C
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.
