I have a machine here that cannot use the ping or tracert commands successfully. Strange thing is, the internet connectivity is not having any issues. There is no router involved. I CAN ping to 127.0.0.1, same goes for tracert. but any requests to outside IP's "Time out".
I have seen similar issues before, and with quick research on Google (With Ping not working and internet also not working, or ping working but not internet... etc.) But the only thing I found relevant to this issue had the resolution of "Turn off your firewall / Configure your windows firewall to allow IMCP requests... etc.
The only installed firewall is windows firewall, and it is currently completely disabled. The ICMP settings though do concern me. "Allow incoming echo requests" is checked (and cannot be unchecked), with no other options selected.
Any help / advice? The machine is: Windows XP Pro SP3.
