3. Components > Ping

Name

Ping — \windows\system32\ping.exe

Synopsis

The primary function of Ping is to see if another computer is "alive" and reachable. Ping works on local networks and across Internet connections. For example, if you type ping oreilly.com at a command prompt and get at least one response like this:

Reply from 209.204.146.22: bytes=32 time=78ms TTL=238

it means that a successful connection was established and the remote system responded to the ping. Otherwise, you'll see Request timed out, meaning that it is down or the connection has been severed. The syntax of Ping is as follows:

ping target [-t] [-a] [-i ttl] [-n count] [-l size] [-f] 
  [-w timeout] [-r count] [-s count] [-j host_list | 
  -k host_list] [-v tos]
