How to Make a Ping Utility on Windows NT Systems?


Helps in determining TCP/IP networks IP address as well as determine issues with the network and assists in resolving them. See the ping definition for a full description.
Pings the localhost. which helps determine if the computer can send information out and receive the information back from itself.
Note: The above command does not send information over network, but can indicate if the card can respond .
Ping supports the ability to ping an Internet address. In the above example, we pinged "computerhope.com" and as can be seen, received four responses back. If we couldn't reach the server or the server was blocking our request we would have lost all four packets .
Allows you to ping another computer where <69.72.169.241> can be the IP address of the computer you want to ping. If you do not get a reply or get lost packets you have a problem with your network, which can be a cable issues, network card issues, drivers. router. switch. or other network problem.

Two PCs (PC A & PC B) on the same network. While PC B can be pinged from PC A, reverse doesn't happen. So, how to access a shared folder stored in PC A from PC B ? Please suggest.


Thats because there is a Firewall in between or in the PC A.

1.- Disable windows firewall in PC A, or
2.- ask the network admin to open the connections between PC A to PC B.

Check to see you have no missing or damaged files. From a command prompt with Admin rights run " SFC / scannow"

Internet Not Working


I know i'm speaking the obvious, but you are defininatly being on a corporate LAN.

If you are able to ping google, than there is no problem with outside communication.


I'd check the configuration settings of first of all the software on the PC, then connect to the router/network server and see if your ports are being forwarded correctly through your firewall. If my memory serves me right, TCP ports 8000-8099 are used for web browsing, 21-25 are used for FTP access, etc.

It would also help to know if any other PCs on the network are experiencing the same problem or not. If they aren't, you could compare configuration settings in them to determine what to look for and change on the mulfunctioning computer.

if they aren't, your SOL on using that as a method, but still RDP or VNC to the server (or just factory reset the router, if it's a small soho router), and reconfigure/check settings.
