10. Ping

This chapter describes how to start and use the Ping utility supplied with ProNFS.

You can test that the TCP/IP transport is installed and configured correctly by using the Ping utility. Ping can help you isolate network hardware problems and incompatible configurations by allowing you to verify a physical connection to a remote host.

While running, Ping sends a sequence of data packets to a remote host with the time interval specified. If connection between your PC and the host exists, Ping will receive a response after every packet sent. If Ping finds the host, it outputs the appropriate message.

Ping communicates with only one remote host at a time. However, you can run multiple Ping sessions simultaneously in separate windows with each session connected to a different host.

To ping remote hosts, you can select the standard MS Windows ICMP interface protocol or the TCP protocol.

You can choose the IPv4 mode or the IPv6 mode for pinging remote hosts (for both the ICMP and TCP protocols).

Ping can automatically choose the protocol (ICMP or TCP) and the mode (IPv4 or IPv6) for pinging remote hosts.

You can use the '*' wild card symbol in the IP address to scan up to 256 hosts in your LAN to see at once which hosts are alive.
