Windows file server could not be added to librenms GUI

While other network devices have been added to librenms, I am not able to add the windows file server 2012 to librenms GUI.

./validate.php and ./ executes correctly…and while trying to ping the windows server from librenms it does not ping instead it shows the following error.

[email protected]:~$ ./validate.php

[email protected]:~$ ping
ping: Do you want to ping broadcast? Then -b. If not, check your local firewall rules

The error message is obvious :wink:

You must accept icmp in your firewall

Yes the firewall settings on windows inbound rules is enabled for icmp
still not able to connect, Thank you

This error is not related to LibreNMS.

You’re pinging your broadcast adress,
Which means you set a netmask of on your librenms machine.
Change that to whatever it’s suppose to be

Thank you it worked now …this community of librenms is very helpful for beginners like me
