    Can't Ping

    I have an issue I don't understand. There are a number of PCs on my 2008 R2 Windows 7 network that I cannot Ping or connect to C drive using run command. The PCs are fine ie no problems users logging on, connecting to network shares or internet without problem. Why would I not be able to Ping them or connect remotely to C$ drive ? any advice gratefully received.

    Do they have a firewall on them?
    Different subnet with no route from your PC?

    what do the ipconfig's show?
    different subnets/gateways used?
    IPV4 or IPV6?
    Are they roughly in the same area of the school? Are they going through the routers/switches?

    Yep looks like firewall settings. Everything is so easy when you know the answer.
