    Hello,
    I am studying for my CCNA and have just purchased a 2611xm router to train with the IOS.
    I have connected my PC via the console port and with XP's HyperTerminal I am configuring the router.
    Assigned IP address 192.168.1.200 to FA0/0, and is up and up.
    The same PC is assigned IP 192.168.1.100 /24, connected with a crossover cable to Fa0/0 and is able to ping int Fa0/0.
    However, from console I can't ping my PC; it times out.
    Why is that?

    I also installed SecureCRT on the PC and I can Telnet into the router. Appearantly the PC can communicate through the Ethernet connection; so why can't I ping my PC from console?

    At the risk of sounding like a complete moron - isn't ping used to test IP connectivity? The console port doesn't have an IP address and doesn't communicate over Ethernet. You shouldn't be able to ping your PC from the console...

    At least that's what I think. I may have misread the question, or may indeed be a 'complete moron'.

    I think he want to ping his computer from being logged on the router through the console. Did you set up address and subnet mask on a PC?
    Take a look at the firewall as mentioned above

    I have looked at the firewall.... nothing there to stop my ping.
    Yes the PC has been assigned a static IP address with /24 mask and DG.
    I think I want a little bit too much. Hooking up 1 PC through two different interfaces to 1 router is just not cutting it.

    Not much of a network, is it? :D

    I got myself a second crossover cable and will hook up a second pc on Fa0/1 and see if that will work.

    Thanks for the feedback ,Gents; much appreciated.

    With two computers on 2 Fa interfaces everything is working fine (after I disabled Windows Firewall).
    Now I need two switches to practise the STP, VTP and VLAN labs. Another router would be nice too.
    This is such great fun!! I love it. :D

    By default Windows firewall will block incoming pings.

    You don't need to disable the firewall totally, you just need to define settings for ICMP.
