Destination Host Unreachable - Reasons and Solutions

The error message "Destination Host Unreachable " tells that the ping request from our computer cannot find the route to the destination IP address(destination host). It means, the Packet send from your computer reached the destination network successfully but the remote gateway failed to find the destination host. So the remote gateway sends an Echo message Destination host unreachable. One major possibility for this error; there is no route listed in the remote gateway, for the packet send from your computer, to the destination host. If there is no route available, it is impossible to find the destination host and your computer will receive an error message "Destination host unreachable" from remote gateway. So one of the reason for this can be faulty routing table. If the destination host is down at the time the packet send, it may result destination host unreachable error message.
