I have one machine on the network that can't be pinged (by name or IP) or accessed with WMI by other machines on the network. So far I have tried:

  • Disabled firewall and AV
  • Put onto a workgroup then re-added to domain
  • ipconfig /renew
  • Reset TCP/IP
  • Reset Winsock
  • Set a static IP and tried with DHCP

Any idea what to try next? The machine can ping others on the network fine and can also access network resources.

Install wireshark and sniff? Reinstall NIC drivers? Look for duplicate IPs? –  Mike Pennington Aug 3 '12 at 15:19
so you can ping out from this workstation but you cant't ping to it? –  tony roth Aug 3 '12 at 15:58
