Im familiar with the pinging of an Ip address in windows to establish communication of an IP address, however I can not seem to get this in linux, how ca I do this? Is there like an independent software that I can use that can do this in Linux? otherwise how can I use the terminal to achieve this?
Pinging computers in Linux Ubuntu to see if an IP address responds
Pinging an IP address in Ubuntu is very simple and easy. It can be done through Terminal. Follow these steps –
1. Open the terminal. (you will find terminal in applications)
2. Type a command “ping” then space and then an IP address to which you need to ping. For example, Ping 127.199.199.199
3. You can also type the site address that you want to ping.
4. Click o Enter.
5. Once you hit enter, you will be able to see number of bytes sent , Time it took in Milliseconds , and time to live (TTL) value.
