Okay, this one has me stumped. I've got two servers running in my house and I must have made a change that something doesn't like. I usually use RDC to control these servers and I noticed the issues when I was not able to connect. 


I've tried pinging both servers and I get a 'Destination host unreachable' error. The weird part is the response is not from the server but from my LAN ip address... I have tried pinging on both my desktop and laptop and I get the same destination host unreachable error.


Anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this issue and get me back on my servers? :o



EDIT: AH! I figured it out. If anyone else is having this issue my solution may be unique but since this is a learning forum I will post it anyway.


I have Dynamic DNS set on both the servers and I set the same host up on both servers, I figured it would resolve to each server via port. I guess it just causes major network conflicts.... oops!
