To test for a duplicate IP Address:
- Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the machine.
- Ping the device IP Address. See the Related Content for additional information.
- There should not be any replies. Instead, four responses of "Request timed out" should be received.
- If there is a reply, another device on the network (for example, another computer or printer) is configured with the same IP Address. Contact your Network Administrator to resolve the TCP/IP addressing conflict.
