ICMP Ping Echo Request - Use Cases

Check if a server is live and responds to ICMP Echo requests. This tool can also be used to find the IP address of a hostname.

Technical Details


ICMP Ping is a tool that shows if a target host is reachable over the internet via the ICMP protocol.

The tool also performs a quick DNS resolution and shows the IP address of a given hostname.
A set of statistics are shown at the end, such as the number of packets sent/received, percent of packet loss, round trip time information.


Parameter Description
Target The hostname or IP address that will be pinged

How it works

Ping uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) to determine if the target host is reachable. The tool sends ICMP Echo Request packets to the destination host and waits for ICMP Echo Replies.
