Question Cannot ping local computer


I am running CentOS 6.7 My setup is a desktop running centos directly connected to a development board via eth0. Nothing else is on the network. No wireless.
I can ping the desktop host from the dev boad, but when I try to ping the devboard from the host, I get this message from the host:
Destination host unreachable

I have tried pinging the devboard both with the ip address and hostname, with the same result. The hostname for the dvboard is being resolved correctly. The route command shows no route to the device. How can I set this up correctly?

Never mind, my mistake. I had to manually start the ping server on the dev board.
