    Hi guys, I would really appreciate if someone could help me to sort my problem.

    I am using vmware for learning. I have installed server 2003 and client XP. Server runs active directory and dns. 2 pcs currently are using static ip addresses.

    I can log in to the domain and i can ping the server. However, the server does not the see the client. I can not ping the client from the server. Can someone explain me what could cause the problem?

    I started to think that there are problems with vmware. However, i have disabled vmware dchp and i am using host-only on both machines.

    My ip adress for the server is 192.168.10.1, mask 255.255.255.0, dns 192.168.10.1.
    Client uses ip addreess 192.168.10.1, mask 255.255.255.0

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    thank you!!!

    Sorry to everyone. i have sorted the problem. Logged in as the domain administrator and i have disabled the firewall. it has helped me.

    I disabled firewall using a local administrator before. This could be the reason why it did not work.

    Can anyone explain me how it is possible to add setting to the firewall. So it can be running and it will not block my network configurations.

    thank you,

    OK mate, off the top of my head, as I havent got a windows client up and running at the moment, go to Network Connections, Right-click the used connection, properties, Advanced, Firewall Settings, Advanced and then click on the button by ICMP. I think its the top one - incoming echo request.

    Just wondering, why don't you do the MCDST first of all (judging by your previous posts)? Going thru that will help you more than just delving into the 70-270 & Windows 2003.

    i know what you mean. However, i like to sort the problems, search the internet and forums for the solution. I am doing the networking course in uni. So i should have some basic networking knowledge. Furthermore, I am currently on a placement. So i thought i could get some practicals skills. This was the reason to go for 70-270.

    Do you really think it is not for me at the moment?

    Thank you for the advice!

    I presume the above is a typo, as the server and client IP addresses are the same :blink

    ye, you are right. The server is on 192.168.10.1 and the client is on 192.168.10.2.

    I wanted to ask you a quick question. How difficult is 70-270? How much experience I need? How much i need to know about servers?

    Thank you.

    Well it's only due to the type of questions that you've been asking, you may find it easier. Do I really think it's not for you? I don't know... I was offering alternatives. Quite a few of us have gone to Uni, have done various courses, just just remember that these are technology specific exams now so slightly different.

    Whatever you decide, good luck with your studies :)

    Thank you very much for your answer.

    I will have a goal. I'll try to do my best to prepare to 70-270. If i am going really to struggle I will move to alternative way you suggested.

    Thank you.
