Can you traceroute from other pieces of equipment to the .250 machine?
Hopefully something on the same subnet as your i.
And, the .250 address doesn't show up in NETSTAT, right? Like, no one has
it in use already?
And, when you run IPCONFIG on the PC it shows the .250 address, right?
Just a double check that you really changed it's address and didn't mess
up. No slam, even I make mistakes. :-)
