>> I want to know what you find in a typical ping tool.


Is your question , what you find using a typical ping tool ?
Not quite sure what you mean by "in a typical ping tool" ..

I am sure you must have used ping command and experimented with the different flags it has got..

Well...a ping tool that isn't the DOS prompt...i.e. you don't really get the source routing options in a ping tool....

No, that's just what sunray put down! Right...out of those options, what would you find in a typical ping application, i.e. not the DOS prompt...but just a typical windows ping application...

AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

I REALLY didn't think it'd be THIS hard to get a straight forward answer!! No I don't want the parameters to the DOS ping, I don't want a windows program that does ping for me...I want to know what ping parameters a typical windows ping program takes!...I'll start the ball rolling:

End IP
Size of packet
Timeout
...???

Don't just paste the parameters again from the DOS ping, since windows applications don't take (eg) source routing as a parameter because it's pretty much useless now..

Solar Winds Ping Sweep, which comes with the Engineers edition, allows you to:

Delay between PINGS - 0 - 2000 Milliseconds
PING Timeout - 100 - 5000 Milliseconds
PINGs trasmitted per node  - 1 -5
Packet time to live - 1 - 255

It can do reverse address lookup via DNS/WINS

It lets you do the skins.  It easily copies and pastes into a spreadsheet.

You put in the starting IP address and the ending address and away it goes!

Hope this helps.

Forgot to mention, enhanced ping, also with Solar Winds Engineers Edition, offers these settings:

Pol Interval, ICMP Timeout, and packet Time to Live in addition to changing the packet size, and logging.

You can add multiple nodes to ping in this program, and it creates a graphical chart with response times which scrolls.  It's very cool - and good to impress people with a color printer.
