Do i need to constant pinging to keep connection
Pinging a server will be helpful especially on a dial-up connection. Ping by definition is to send a packet to a server and wait for its return. It is also a test if there is an internet connection. Sometimes dial-up connection gets disconnected when idle due to inactivity.
So, to remain connected try to ping your server or host to remind your dial-up Internet Service Provider (ISP) that you’re busy even if idle. It is advisable to ping your server or host at least every 5 minutes.
Try this one: Start Menu > Type CMD. It opens the command prompt.
Type in, Ping <Host.com> -t
Ex: Ping google.com -t
This will always ping your host or server.
Hope this will help you.
