Ping question...
Simgauts Dec-31-00 06:33 PM
My network have 2 computers, the host is 192.168.0.1 for ip and I set the client one to 192.168.0.2 . But when I do a ping localhost on the client, he return 127.0.0.1 as ip address ?

So when im on the host and ping 127.0.0.1, the host "see" the client with a correct response. But when I'm on the client and ping 192.168.0.1, the client see nothing ?

I see from a more recent post that you solved your ICS problem… 127.0.0.1 is used for testing the TCP/IP stack (the collection of five layered protocols implementing the TCP/IP suite) with the PING command. If TCP/IP is installed and you “ping localhost”, you should get a response from 127.0.0.1 every time. Likewise, if you ping 127.0.0.1 should get a response from 127.0.0.1 every time. All you are doing is having a computer ping its own stack. A better way to test the client from the client is to ping the client’s own IP address: 192.168.0.2 in your case or previous case. Larry
