Laptop can't see one server out of 3 servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have this laptop which is hard wired to my network, can ping all other servers and machines (also vice versa) except the server I need to map.

    Lets call it 155. and servers are 4, 5 and 20.

    other machine is 159 and 110. gateway is 3.

    so 155 can ping 5, 20, 159 and 110 but request timed out for 4. can ping even gateway 3.

    servers 5 (dns server) can ping 155 no probs, sees it in dhcp too and ping server 4 easily.

    machine 110 can ping 155 and 4,5,20,3 and 159.

    just there is no communication between 155 and server 4. no ping no mapping.

    Any ideas guys.

  • Nevermind guys.

    I changed to a different ip address (static) to try and it worked.

    Now as static wont be seen in DHCP I would like to add mac address of network card with that ip in reservations on dhcp server.

    Does that sounds a good solution?
