Thread: My Computers HATE each other

  1. My Computers HATE each other


    Hi,

    I've got a pair of computers, each one with Albatron KX600-Pro system boards,
    and AMD Barton processors. One has Windows 2003 Server (Enterprise Edition)
    loaded on it (acting as the server), the other with Windows 2000 Professional
    (acting as the client). The server has the Intel PRO/100 S Server Adapter (PCI),
    the client has the AirLink 10/100 PCI network adapter. They are linked with
    a LinkSys 10/100 S Port WorkGroup Switch.

    I can get the IP addresses for each with the IPConfig /all command.
    Both the server and the client can ping themselves with their own respective
    IP addresses (as well as localhost), but they cannot ping each other.

    I can run the diagnostic tool with the Intel card. The card passes all six
    of the first set of tests (EEPROM, Control Registers, Interrupt, PHY Loopback,
    MAC Loopback, Link), but when I run the advanced test (for sender/responder),
    it searches for a responder, but cannot find one. The lights on both of the
    cards flash during the process, as well as on the LinkSys Switch, so a signal
    OF SOME KIND is being sent and received.

    I've tried using a different switch (Intellinet Ethernet switch),
    and changed out the cabling, with the same results.

    I assigned a static IP address to the client, as there is no communication
    with the server for IP address assignment with DHCP.

    Here is the client IPConfig:
