Ping

Ping is a programme that uses ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) echo request packets to verify IP connectivity to another host or network. The standard ping programme that comes with Windows NT 4.0 is run from the Command Prompt window and takes an IP address or resolvable name as its command line parameter.
