Ping type:

Tool description

Ping is a network tool to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network. This network can be IPv4 or IPv6. The standard ping works by sending ICMP packets to the host and listening for ICMP replies. The advanced ping works over TCP and makes a connection to port 80 or port 443. You can select the TCP ping function in the advanced options menu. The tool estimates the round-trip time, detects any packet loss, and prints a statistical summary. Just type a domain name or an IP address (IPv4 and IPv6) and click the Go button.

Example objectives
