static IP not ping from outside
Hi, I have took a new broadband connection, and I got new static IP. I have 4 linux machine and 1 vista machine and 1 switch. I have joined my internet connection to the switch and all 5 machine are connected to switch. Now if I giving my static IP to any one of my linux machine then this static IP is pinging from outside my local network, but when I give the same static IP to my vista machine (I had remmove static IP from linux machine), the static IP is not pinging from outside my local network.
Before taking new broadband connection, I had wireless connection and 1 dynamic static IP on my vista machine, and that time this static IP was pinging from out side my local network.
so what is wrong now? why my new static IP not pinging from outside? Please reply me as soon as possible, if any one knows solution for this.
