Question about Other Network Devices
I am facing network connectivity problem with few of the pc's in my office wherein it can ping one system and cannot ping the other. I ensured whether problem with the switch / lan cable through cable tester the connectivity is fine . All the pc's fall under the same work group...This problem keeps killing me..
suggestions at the earliest are most welcomed...
Thanks in advance
Most likely issue is no common server on the network to specify which computer has what IP address and associate that with a name. Bob's computer gets a different IP address each time he turns it on, and the same happens with Sally. But Joe's always seems to get the same IP, so everybody can always find Joe. Specifying static IP addresses on all computers is a beginning to solving this, then I would edit the hosts file on each computer to specify that Bob is at IP x.x.x.x, and Sally is x.x.x.x, and Joe is x.x.x.x, copy this hosts file to all computers, and edit it when new computers are added. Another solution would be to get a Windows Server that is doing both the DHCP (Assigning Addresses) and DNS (A computer program running on a server, translating names into IP addresses), all computers will ask the DNS server where Bob is, and get a response from an internal server that says bob is x.x.x.x
The issue you are having is the number one reason to get away from a peer-to-peer network.
