Hi,

I'm running Windows 2003 server (Enterprise Edition) on an Albatron KX600-Pro
with a Barton processor.

I did an IPCONFIG, and I got the static IP address for the server, and I did
the same with the client PC, which are linked together with
my LinkSys Ethernet switch.

I can use those IP addresses for those PC's to ping themselves OK,
but I can't ping the server with the client PC (I get "session timed out"),
neither can I ping the client PC with the server
(I get "destination host unreachable").

The client PC also has a KX600-Pro with a Barton processor.

I've changed the NIC in the client, changed over to the on-board Ethernet
adapter on the server, as well as the cabling to each PC.

I ran NETDIAG, and got the following:

Obviously, the systemlog test spewed forth a lot of errors.

Can anyone clue me in as to what the problem might be?

TIA.
