client can ping, server can not RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sir,

    There are 3 machines ( win7 pro. win08r2 server. network printer) in the lan

    win7 can ping other 2 machines.

    win08r2 can ping win7 client but can not ping network printer.

    (At 1st, it is OK for all ping becoz of printer deployment.  Suddenly server can not ping and client can print directly, but client can not print by server)

    Problem will be solved by restarted, I'd like to get alternative method.

  • Are you using NIC teaming or anything like that?

    When you are unable to ping the printer, does it show in the ARP cache? (arp -a)

    I saw a problem like this recently where a laptop would not ping a printer over ethernet, but would via wi-fi.

    I suspected bad switch port or cable, the printer was replaced by the client (due to be replaced anyway) so i never got too deep into troubleshooting it.
