Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s possible the switch has client isolation enabled. This is especially common with wireless access points and switches. The clients can talk to the switch and anything upstream from it, but are prevented from talking to each other as a security measure.

    I'm not sure about your question...
    The PING command is used on a TCP/IP network in order to know if the distant machine is available (from a network point of view, it doesn't mean that the requested service is functionnal).
    The answer is given by the netword interface card.

    You can not "connect" anything with the PING command, it works only for already connected machines.

    Ping is use to check the connectivity between two PCs.

    You don't.

    You don't "connect" systems with ping. A ping request can only tell you if a route exists between the systems. Note that if ping cannot determine that a route exists, it does not mean that a route does not exist; it only means that ping can't tell.

    But the general sense of the question is not appropriate for this forum. It indicates basic research rather than a technical IT problem that we might help solve.
