I have an issue pinging(accessing) my IP address from the internet at work or friends place.
I can't ping my home PC (which is running XP) from the internet, at work. I have cable broadband internet, and a Netgear wireless router.
From the PC at home I can ping the IP address and it responds as it should.
I have wireless router, and I can ping the IP address from another of my home PC’s too. But from over the internet I can't ping it.
Yes, I do have the correct external IP address. I am not trying to ping my internal IP (192.168.0.1)
I have no real idea why I can’t ping from outside my home network. I do have ICMP enabled too. Could it be that my ISP is blocking ‘ping’.
I am just trying to ping my IP to see if my PC is reachable and up and running, because I would like to access my home PC over the internet. I’d like top access music, files, webpage, etc… I have apache web server setup and running. It works well from my home network. I have also set up an SSH server, for added security. It’s a hobby for me, just learning at the moment. But I can’t seem to access my PC at the moment outside my home network.
Thank you for your patience.
