• Pinging from linux to windows does not work (but vice versa works)

    From wkevin@1:0/0 to All on Fri Jun 28 18:45:46 2013

    Hello,
    I have this strange problem:
    I have a windows machine, 192.168.2.120
    I have a Linux machine, 192.168.2.200
    They are connected via a router, which has IP address of 192.168.2.1

    The default gateway of both machines is the router,
    192.168.2.1.

    I can ping from windows to Linux.
    I cannot ping from Linux to windows (But I **do** see the PING
    packet which are sent from Linux in the windows wireshark sniffer)

    I checked sw on windows: the Lavasofy AdAware does not block pings.
    not there is anything in the windows firewall which block pings.

    What can it be ? any ideas?


    regards,
    Kevin

    It could be a wording problem. You say you cannot
    'ping from Linux to Windows'. But the packets
    do show up at the Windows machine. This means that
    they are *not* turned around and echoed by the
    Windows machine. So, we restate it as:

    "...Windows does not return pings sent from
    Linux machine..."

    Try troubleshooting further armed with that
    information. Also, what are you using at the
    Linux machine to monitor? Just the terminal?

    Try arping, and see if that gets through. It works at a lower level
    (ARP), and is much less likely to be blocked by some sort of firewall.

    And tell us which version of Windows you're using.

    is your windows firewall on? if it's on, you might not ping through.
