  • Check ping.exe and make sure it is permitted in your firewall (if you are not using Windows Firewall).

  • allow ping in firewall either windows or antivirus if installed.

    are you able to ping those server or client from other machines ?

    is all client/server on same subnet?

  • Hi yogesh_,

    I agree with Deepak.
    Please check if client machines and a server are on the same subnet, using IPCONFIG command.

  • Hi ,

    Is the server in your subnet or another subnet ? I mean any firewall or router between ? 

    This message indicates one of two problems: either the local system has no route to the desired destination, or a remote router reports that it has no route to the destination. The two problems can be distinguished by the form of the message. If the message is simply "Destination Host Unreachable," then there is no route from the local system, and the packets to be sent were never put on the wire. check the local routing table.
    If the message is "Reply From < IP address >: Destination Host Unreachable," then the routing problem occurred at a remote router, whose address is indicated by the "< IP address >" field. check the IP routing table of the router assigned the IP address of < IP address >.
    If you pinged using an IP address, retry it with a host name to ensure that the IP address you tried is correct.

    Best regards
