Cannot Ping to the server 2008 r2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a server windows 2008 r2 with ip , I can ping locally to the server. but if I access it from a vpn connect I cannot ping to the server , but I can ping all other pc and devices across the network. 

    note: I don't have a firewall setting, network access policy 

    best regards,

  • Does any other connection work after VPN? Like file share access, Connecting remote Services (services.msc) or remote WMI, telnet?

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the post.

    It seems like your Windows Firewall issue on window server 2008 R2, By default, Windows Firewall does not allow incoming ICMP Echo messages on windows server 2008 or 2008 R2 , and therefore the computer cannot send an ICMP Echo Reply in response.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for you post, it seems to me that windows firewall is completely turned off. locally I can ping.

  • Hi,

    In my opinion it is not a server fault (if You are able to ping it from Your internal network). I would rather look closer to VPN setting.

    Also subnet 192.168.1.x is quite common. Maybe You have some IP conflicts between You home network and VPN.

    In general You shouldn't use VPN between same subnets.
