Alright maybe somebody might be able to help me with this.

Basically we have a box that we are going to be using for testing. It is set up on our network and DHCP always assigns the same IP address to all the boxes we have. Well the problem is with what we will say is BOX A. When we try to ping BOX A from BOX B it won't work, request times out. When we do it vice-versa it works fine.

When we use remote desktop from BOX B to BOX A it works fine. All the DNS, GATEWAY, etc are all the same. The only difference is the IP address as box A is and BOX B is

Anybody got any ideas? Everything works except pinging BOX A through command prompt. Even hyperterminal doesn't work...

thanks! :thumbsup:
