Two workstations connected to the EGS2110P are not able to ping across the same network segment

Recommended Posts

Scenario:

Computer 1 (192.168.1.100) <-> router (192.168.1.61) <-> EGS2110P (192.168.1.108) <-> computer 2 (192.168.1.103)

The EGS2110P has no VLANs and being used as a simple switch. Tried disabling/enabling Bonjour but no effect. The only change on the switch from the stock configuration is the static IP. Is there a setting that needs to be enabled to allow the ping to go through the switch?

 

Fix:

When sending ping request across the network it uses ICMP (internet connection message protocol). Firewall is native to windows platform and it is enabled by default. This is the reason why the ICMP echo request is blocked and most cases failed to reach the destination address.

What you need to do is either disable the windows firewall of the computer completely or create an exceptional rule for ICMP echo request to reply ping commands in existing firewall.

Good question rhinox27. Woldwide Internet has everything or maybe not. The link below has a better info compare to others posts over the web. Hope this suffices your requirement.
