Mail server showing multiple IP's when pinged

March 14, 2012 at 00:19:18
Specs: Windows XP
Hi,

When I'm pinging my mail server, it gave me different IP's at different times. As the mail server is actually owned by us, I would like to know if that is possible without the IP actually being changed by someone.

Thanks.

Could be multiple entries in the dns server.

What are you pointed to for dns?

I am really sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean by "What are you pointed to for dns?"
I suppose by DNS do you mean "Domain Name Server/System"? But I have no clue how to find the same.
May be you could guide me how to identify this? I can provide any information that you'd require. Just ask.

I really appreciate your reply. Thanks a lot.

please post the results of a ipconfig /all as well as posts of the ping results.

To do this go to a command prompt
type ipconfig /all
in the window title bar right mouse click select edit and select all
then do the same and select copy
paste into a post here.

do the same with the ping results

Ok! I screwed up. I can see that now. I should have double checked. My apologies.

I was just trying to post an image (which apparently didn't work, from another forum) as this place doesn't allow posting images as such.

I found two DNS servers. The screentshot is in this new link. I am sure this is accessible now.

P.S. I don't have the liberty to post the entire IP addresses or Host names, I hope that wont stop the troubleshooting.
Please help me out here if you have the time.

Regards,
Raj

Because you can't provide the information we need we can't help you.

No one can given the circumstances. You will have to figure this out internally.

Do review the dns servers and perhaps hosts files if used.

Best of luck
