The description of Any Ping
Any Ping is a light weight application to test the reach-ability of a host. Any Ping has many option to advanced ping.
1) No root access require.
2) Ping by host name or host IP.
3) Complete output as like terminal.
4) Fast and easy to use.
5) Host history saves automatically.
6) Ability to write option with host(eg: -c 5 host).
7) Many options to execute with command.
Options to ping:-
Stop after sending count ECHO_REQUEST packets. With deadline
option, ping waits for count ECHO_REPLY packets, until the time-
Wait interval seconds between sending each packet. The default
is to wait for one second between each packet normally, or not
to wait in flood mode. Only super-user may set interval to val-
ues less 0.2 seconds.
interface is either an address, or an interface name. If inter-
face is an address, it sets source address to specified inter-
face address. If interface in an interface name, it sets source
interface to specified interface. For IPv6, when doing ping to
a link-local scope address, link specification (by the '%'-nota-
tion in destination, or by this option) is required.
If preload is specified, ping sends that many packets not wait-
ing for reply. Only the super-user may select preload more than
use mark to tag the packets going out. This is useful for vari-
ety of reasons within the kernel such as using policy routing to
select specific outbound processing.
Select Path MTU Discovery strategy. pmtudisc_option may be
either do (prohibit fragmentation, even local one), want (do
PMTU discovery, fragment locally when packet size is large), or
dont (do not set DF flag).
You may specify up to 16 ``pad'' bytes to fill out the packet
you send. This is useful for diagnosing data-dependent problems
in a network. For example, -p ff will cause the sent packet to
be filled with all ones.
-Q tos Set Quality of Service -related bits in ICMP datagrams. tos can
be decimal (ping only) or hex number.
In RFC2474, these fields are interpreted as 8-bit Differentiated
Services (DS), consisting of: bits 0-1 (2 lowest bits) of sepa-
rate data, and bits 2-7 (highest 6 bits) of Differentiated Ser-
vices Codepoint (DSCP). In RFC2481 and RFC3168, bits 0-1 are
used for ECN.
Historically (RFC1349, obsoleted by RFC2474), these were inter-
preted as: bit 0 (lowest bit) for reserved (currently being
redefined as congestion control), 1-4 for Type of Service and
bits 5-7 (highest bits) for Precedence.
Specifies the number of data bytes to be sent. The default is
56, which translates into 64 ICMP data bytes when combined with
the 8 bytes of ICMP header data.
Set socket sndbuf. If not specified, it is selected to buffer
not more than one packet.
-t ttl ping only. Set the IP Time to Live.
-T timestamp option
Set special IP timestamp options. timestamp option may be
either tsonly (only timestamps), tsandaddr (timestamps and
addresses) or tsprespec host1 [host2 [host3 [host4]]] (timestamp
Specify a timeout, in seconds, before ping exits regardless of
how many packets have been sent or received. In this case ping
does not stop after count packet are sent, it waits either for
deadline expire or until count probes are answered or for some
error notification from network.
Time to wait for a response, in seconds. The option affects only
timeout in absence of any responses, otherwise ping waits for
Specify through which path the ping should send the packet to destination.
