hosts not pingable from fedora


I have some barcode readers that I would like to auto ping from my fedora box running nagios network monitor.

These barcode readers are pingable from windows, and our one AIX (Unix) box, but is not pingable from the fedora box. I can ping the fedora box from windows and AIX and I can ping windows and AIX from the fedora box.

How would I go about debugging this?

Are these barcode readers wireless or on a wired network?

This is in a corporate environment.

We are using a class A network and all devices that I am referring to are wired through switches to our backbone switch.
