Re: [rhelv5-list] Cannot ping one specific IP address, everything else works


Interesting.  I have had a similar case in production support and someone had set ACLs from the printer's web gui.  You may want to check that as well since it sounds like you have disabled all possible firewall rules on the server.  Check the printer itself from the computer that can ping it.  I locked my printer down in my office (HP as well) to only work with one IP and that was my Dom0.

Hope this helps,

  I've tried to figure this one out for the past few days, but I just can't.  The problem is rather simple, everything works fine, but I can't ping this specific IP address (, from Dom0 or DomUs.  This IP address is an HP printer (JetDirect card)

1.  Boot from any Linux LiveCD and try pinging from the same everything except the same booted operating system.

2. Find an IP address that you can ping the printer from.  Move that IP address to the printer, and move the printer's IP address to that machine. Test and see what you can and can not ping.

3. If the printer and the other machine are in the same (or nearby) switches, change their switch ports and/or cables.  You may change your cable/switch port as well.

4. Use wireshark or tcpdump to sniff packets.
