Ping works but neither Net View nor Net Use respond
net view and net use commands
(or network neighborhood) require a session be established on the target whereas
ping does not. Things to check:
- Target must have Server service running to establish
- NT target must have licenses available to establish a session. A server
overcommitted on its licenses can respond to ping but not a session oriented
- Net commands require port 139 to be enabled on
- ping send small packets (74 bytes). A router may be misconfigured to only
support small packets. Use ping to test packet sizes normally used by Net
ping target -l 1012
ping target -l
ping target -l 3036
ping target -l
- Verify that target is not hung. Ping has been know to generate responses on
