I have two laptops connected to a switch, which is connected to my MX. The MX is giving out the correct dhcp to both laptops.
My problem is that one laptop can ping devices on the network, while the other laptop cannot ping the device.
What could be the reason?
Solved! Go to Solution.
both machines are on the same VLAN (1)
I'm sure it's the firewall because when I connect my laptop to the same switch, I have no issue, so it have to be laptop specific.
Couple of questions:
Yes, the laptop is the initiator of the ping
I'm trying to ping 172.16.63.205, which is an AXIS camera. I can ping it from my laptop, but not from another laptop on the same network. Both laptops can ping other cameras, so I'm not sure if it's an issue with the AXIS camera.
I didn't try packet capture yet.
I need to check on this also.
Just thought of this: Could be a wrong subnet mask setting on the AXIS camera. That may cause this kind of issue where it can respond to one IP in the range but not another.
I didn't have the chance to try packet capture yet, but I noticed that when I do a tracert to 172.16.63.205, it goes directly to that IP, so I only have one hop.
But, the other laptop goes to 192.168.2.1 (which is a cisco 2900 router), but then it drops.
Both laptops are on the 172.17.0.x ip address.
I have the Cisco 2900 router connected to MX because I'm on a trial Meraki.
