Hi all
I'm having a trouble refer to pinging a server. On my machine name M5K2-SysAdmDev2 (10.194.23.195) I cant ping to another machine name somc245 (10.194.21.207) both by name or by IP.

I've added an entry for somc245 in /etc/hosts/ and /ect/hosts.equiv and then updated NIS but problem is not solved. (if not add, i just can ping by IP, not by name)
I've tested with a third machine name M4K2-SysAdmDev2 (10.194.23.205), it can ping both M5K2-SysAdmDev2 (10.194.23.195) and somc245 (10.194.21.207).
On somc245, I also can ping M5K2-SysAdmDev2 (10.194.23.195):
+$ ping M5K2-SysAdmDev2+
M5K2-SysAdmDev2 is alive
But cant do vice versa. When i ping somc245 from M5K2-SysAdmDev2 it returns "no answer from 10.194.21.207":
+$ ping 10.194.21.207+
no answer from 10.194.21.207
+$ ping somc245+
no answer from somc245

I dont know how can I ping somc245 (10.194.21.207)  from M5K2-SysAdmDev2 (10.194.23.195)?
Do I need to config anything in known_hosts or authorized_keys in .ssh directory?
Here is some information on my servers:
