PING

Ping (Packet Internet Groper) is another executable program that creates an echo request to a host on a TCP/IP based network. It communicates using the ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol). When you use the ping command, your system sends out an ICMP packet and then waits for a response from a remote host and measures the time it takes to respond. PING is an excellent troubleshooting tool for, determining everything from, “is TCP/IP loaded”, to determining where a fault may lie in a connection. ‘PINGing’ specific IP addresses does this.

To use the PING command, type PING followed by the IP address you wish to verify a connection to, at the Command Prompt. Note the example that follows.

PING Command

The Ping command, when invoked with an IP number or name using PING –t will continuously transmit to find if a device is communicating.
