The Ping command allows you to specify the computer name instead of the IP address. Users usually like to do Ping on the website by name. Ping a response website In the above image, you can see the result of Ping Google ( at the Windows command prompt. Ping reports the target IP address and response time (in milliseconds). Please note that large websites like Google take advantage of many Web server computers around the world. Many different IP addresses (all valid) can be reported on Ping websites. Ping an unresponsive website Many websites (including will prevent Ping requests, which is a kind of network security precaution. The results of Ping on these sites vary, but usually include an error message that the target network cannot access, and there is no useful information. The IP address that blocks Ping's Ping site report is usually the DNS server, rather than the website itself.

Not every Ping is successful, in some cases, the Ping request fails. There are many reasons for this, there are 4 reasons listed below. The IP address specified by the ping program is invalid. Your computer is not connected to the IP network. It does not have its own IP address. No network device is connected to the destination IP address. It means that the IP address of your Ping is not used by a network device. The network between your computer and your target is congested, or Ping is banned by the target device. The above illustration shows a typical Ping session when the program does not receive any response from the target IP address. When the program waits and eventually times out, each reply from the line takes several seconds to appear on the screen. The IP address quoted in each output line of the output is the address of the Ping (host) computer. Intermittent Ping response Although uncommon, Ping may report a response rate other than 0% (no response at all) or 100% (complete response). This usually occurs when the target system is closed (as shown in the example) or when it is started.

Ping computers can be sent through IP addresses or names. You can use IP address to Ping computer. Open a shell prompt (in Microsoft Windows, the Command Prompt or MS-DOS Prompt on the Start Menu). Type ping followed by a space and then the IP address. Press the Enter (or Return) key. Explain the result of Ping Reply from: By default, Microsoft Windows Ping sends four messages to this address. The program outputs the confirmation row for each response message received from the target computer. Bytes: By default, the size of each Ping request is 32 bytes. Time: Ping reports the amount of time between sending requests and receiving responses (in milliseconds). TTL: It is the abbreviation of Time to Live. TTL is between 1 and 128 and can be used to calculate the number of networks that Ping messages pass through before reaching the target computer. The value 128 indicates that the device is on the local network and there are 0 other networks. How to run Ping continuously On some computers that use Linux, the standard ping command does not stop running after four request attempts, but runs until the user finishes it. This is very useful for those who want to monitor…
