My TCP/IP setting is IPv4 ( obtain IP address automatically and statically assign DNS server addresses ).
IPv6 ( obtain IPv6 address automatically and DNS server addresses ).
IPv4 connectivity - Internet
IPv6 connectivity - Local
I don't know the TCP/IP setting on the local server ( 192.168.x.x )

Open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

ipconfig /all

Once you've finished, copy/paste the output into a response on here so we can have a look.

For info on how to copy/paste from a command prompt window click on my name above and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Post the output of ipconfig (version 2)"

Do this on both systems and label the output appropriately so we can compare.

You'll notice your computers IP address is: 192.168.50.215 and the default gateway is 192.168.50.1 but all other important addresses (DNS, WINS) are 192.168.40.x

Since you're masking at 255.255.255.0 (24 bits) this makes those two separate networks and the clients in 192.168.50.0/24 won't be able to access the internet because the gateway and DNS are 192.168.40.0/24 and unreachable.

You'll want to either put everything in the same network (ie: 192.168.50.0/24 or 192.168.40/24) or supernet your network so both .40 and .50 are in the same subnet (network).

I should mention, you could also put a router between the subnets if you have need for separate subnets. Then your PC would have something like the following:


IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.50.215(Preferred)
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.50.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.50.1
Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 192.168.50.1
Secondary WINS Server . . . . . . : 192.168.50.1

The LAN side of the second router would be 192.168.50.1 and you would put a static route from the 192.168.50.0/24 to the 192.168.40.0/24 network and traffic would then flow from one network to the other, then to the internet and back.

For more info on how to do this click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second Router to your LAN

I would point out that .40 is reachable since its dhcp server is what supplied the ip address. If the .40 network is between the internet and this pc than it is reachable.

Kks what you want to do is two things;

tracert servername
nslookup servername

Post the results here for review.

Oye!

It's been one of those weeks!

I thought the original post said he had LAN connectivity but no internet. I should have reread the whole thing before my last reply. My apologies Kks

Upon rereading everything I'm thinking you may want to pick either IPv4 or IPv6 but I would try disabling one of the two (I'd start with IPv6 myself) and see if you can connect to the server properly then.

There are about 20 computers in our LAN. Others in our LAN can connect not only local server(\\192.168.40.12) but also Internet. My PC can connect Internet but not local server(\\192.168.40.12). VMware(SUSELinux) on my Window Vista PC can connect ( browse) the local server. My window Vista pc cannot connect although it can ping the IP(192.168.40.12).( I want to use things like softwares shared on the server) I would like to browse the server from the host ( window vista not VMware Linux)

My window Vista pc cannot connect although...

At the risk of sounding flippant, or like I don't care, I have to say "Nuff said!"

Your problem is obviously Vista if Linux is working on the exact same box. Whether it's because Vista is, and always was, a piece of crap operating system that MS should never have released, or a configuration issue in the BVM I can't say, but I highly recommend you replace Vista with XP or Windows 7. If you were to do so, I suspect the problem would go away.

Someone else may have some solid advice for you on this but you may have to try the Windows Vista forum. I can't help you with Vista, I've never touched it and I never will.
