What is your problem exactly ? There is no diiference between output of ping to a real or to a virtual console .
So I can't understand : "...how a ping program works under Telnet.." .
Otherwise , if yoou want to use ping for some special purpose , ask ,ore detailed question .

mmhh...

no, ping has much more options in linux than in windows.

see linux manual:

NAME
       ping, ping6 - send ICMP ECHO_REQUEST to network hosts
                                                                                                               
SYNOPSIS
       ping  [  -LRUbdfnqrvVaAB]   [  -c count]  [ -i interval]  [ -l preload]  [ -p pattern]  [ -s
       packetsize]  [ -t ttl]  [ -w deadline]  [ -F flowlabel]  [ -I interface]  [ -M hint]   [  -P
       policy]   [ -Q tos]  [ -S sndbuf]  [ -T timestamp option]  [ -W timeout]  [ hop ...]  desti-
       nation

and in windows:

C:\>ping /?

Usage: ping [-t] [-a] [-n count] [-l size] [-f] [-i TTL] [-v TOS]
            [-r count] [-s count] [[-j host-list] | [-k host-list]]
            [-w timeout] target_name

Options:
    -t             Ping the specified host until stopped.
                   To see statistics and continue - type Control-Break;
                   To stop - type Control-C.
    -a             Resolve addresses to hostnames.
    -n count       Number of echo requests to send.
    -l size        Send buffer size.
    -f             Set Don't Fragment flag in packet.
    -i TTL         Time To Live.
    -v TOS         Type Of Service.
    -r count       Record route for count hops.
    -s count       Timestamp for count hops.
    -j host-list   Loose source route along host-list.
    -k host-list   Strict source route along host-list.
    -w timeout     Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply.


also ping in linux/unix works until you hit control-c, while in windows it sends only four packets by default.

Also, some systems restrict ping to the root account, so you might need to su to root.

As stated earlier in the post, ping works the same on just about every host, but has different options.  When you ping a host, an ICMP echo request is sent from the host the ping program is running on to a host that you want to ping.  Ping expects an ICMP echo reply from the host it is pinging to know that it is up, and a route through the internet exists for the host that it pinged.
