  2. Hello Praveen,

    Sounds like DNS. What OS are you talking about? Is it a domain with DNS server
    or workgroup? Please give some more detailts about your network and configuration.

    Best regards

    Assuming that the account exists in DNS, you should be able to ping if that
    acocunt exists there. If not, check WINS, if Wins is not an option you can
    insert that name directly into hosts file.

    I hope that the information above helps you.
    Have a Nice day.

    Sounds like reverse naming is working but not forward. If you have dns
    setup check the host name to verify that the name defined is the actual ip

  6. Hello Praveen,

    Please post an unedited ipconfig /all from server and one client.

    What record are you trying to resolve? Is it a record on your DNS server? Is
    the machine you are pinging from ONLY using that DNS server in it's IP
    properties? If not, does the record exist on the DNS server you are using in
    your machine's IP properties?

    As Meinolf requested, please post an ipconfig /all of the machine you are
    pinging from that is not successful, and an ipconfig /all from the machine
    that is successful. Also provide us the hostname you are trying to ping. If
    you can find out for us as well, find out if that record exists on any of
    the DNS servers involved.

    Thank you,
