  • Can ping laptop from server but can ping anything from laptop

    I just started working for a company that is using static ip addressing at a client site [please don't even suggest DHCP...its not going to happen right now].

    I added the DNS entry for the laptop and was able to ping it from Windows Server 2003 but I can't ping anything from the laptop (except itself by ip/loopback).

    Firewall is down on laptop...any suggestions? I'm really scratching my head and need to get this computer running.

    Thanks!

    Let's start with the basics and move on from there.

    -Is the laptop configured with the proper DNS server?
    -Have you tried using nslookup to verify the record on the server?
    -Can you resolve any other records?

        ...thanks for the replies. Something was wrong with the port on the switch we have. Moved the cable and everything was good. This can be closed.

        Thanks!
