digip Posted February 12, 2009 Share Posted February 12, 2009 I just installed server 2003, set up my DNS, and then Active Directory. I added a user from an XP machine and have everything set up to log on to the domain, pointing to server2003 as the DNS and domian to logon to. Everything is working, I can RDP from the server to the desktop, I can get online with both machines, etc, but one thing I noticed is that the XP machine can ping the server and itself with replies, but the server gets a timeout when trying to ping the XP machine. Tracert gets the same timeout, yet I can RDP into it just fine so long as I know its IP address. Its PTR record is there in DNS with the correct IP as well for reverse lookup of both machines, yet the Server2003 machine can not ping or get a reply from the XP machine. Anyone know if this is normal for a domain setup or what I can change to get the replies? I never seen something like this before. I'm wondering what I could be doing on the XP machine to block this?
