Ping (Packet Internet Groper)
is another executable program that creates an echo
request to a host on a TCP/IP based network.

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

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