Ping (Fully Loaded)

Ping is a very versatile command line tool we rarely used it now a days but today we will discuss some of the most basic and important commands using the ping tool.

1: -  Ping the localhost: - ping localhost or ping 127.0.0.1    before digging into about the target we all should focus on whether our host machine is working properly or not so, we ping our own system.

2: - Resolve ip address to the hostname: - ping -a 172.14.29.39       It can be any ip address it will be resolved to the domain name.

3: -  Check the maximum transmission unit(MTU):-  ping  - f  - l  1600  www.google.com

   I love this command this – f will the set the defragment bit now the packet will not be divided into smaller packets and - l is used to set the size of the packet this information is very important when we are documenting

4:-  Ping with the fixed number of packets: -  ping - n  -l  1500 www.google.com

In this command – n is basically used to send the fixed number of packets to a particular host.

 

5:-  Force the ping command  to used ipv6 instead of ipv4 :- ping  - t  - 6 www.google.com
