Do i need to constant pinging to keep connection


Hi There,

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 <> -t

Ex: Ping -t

This will always ping your host or server.

Hope this will help you.
