I have a problem whereby Windows 8 cannot ping a Linux server but it can ping all of the other Windows servers. However NSLookup is resolved correctly and a ping on the IP number works but a ping on the server name cannot be resolved. Other servers on the network can ping the Linux server just fine, it is only Win8 that seems to have a problem.
The problem can temporarily be cleared by 'net stop dnscache' and is sometimes affected by 'IPConfig /flushdns'.
Can anyone think of any reason why Win8 should have a problem pinging a Linux server?
