This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to ping local IPs on my Mac but it's not working as I would expect.
If I ping 127.0.0.1, there's no problem:
PING 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.056 ms 64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.083 ms 64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.089 ms
However if I ping any other local IPs, it doesn't work:
PING 127.0.0.99 (127.0.0.99): 56 data bytes Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 Request timeout for icmp_seq 3
If I try the same thing on Windows, it's working. Does anybody know why it is not working on Mac OS X?
