I set my NIC on Windows so that I have two interfaces:

  • one (the first one) has IP 192.168.0.5

  • the other one has IP 10.10.10.1.

On a Linux machine I set an interface to 10.10.10.2. On another Linux machine I set the interface to 10.10.10.3. And tried to ping those machines. Here is the result. Linux to Linux is ok. Windows to Linux also is ok. But Linux to Windows does not work.

Can you help me on getting the communication between Linux and Windows? What should I do for this? I have to mention that those machines are connected through a switch.

If you need any details, ask me please!

Thanks in advance!

Is the second interface bridged? –  Colyn1337 Oct 17 '13 at 16:49
    
@Colyn1337 No. See my edited title again please! –  artaxerxe Oct 17 '13 at 17:01

Well, the obvious: did you check that the Windows Firewall is disabled, and no "security" software on the Win machine is intervening? And did you check that the 10.10.10.1 interface is live? Also, try using something other than 10.10.10.1 as Windows does this funky thing sometimes with the address ending in .1, sorta by assuming it's a gateway. –  Debra Oct 17 '13 at 18:49
    
Could you post the windows routing and arp tables to help with troubleshooting please? –  Deesbek Oct 17 '13 at 19:09
    
@Debra You can post it as answer for marking this problem as solved. It is a firewall problem. Thanks. –  artaxerxe Oct 18 '13 at 5:37
