    Hi madchat1,

    the what?

    IIS is used for hosting websites and FTP etc

    PING command is used to query an ip address or name for a response

    IPCONFIG is a detailed explanation of your TCPIP settings

    what kind of link are you looking for?

    PING (Packet Internet Groper) or ICMP (internet control message protocol) echo request is a network layer (IP) diognostic tool for disocovery of hosts. As suggested by Jayjay, IPCONFIG is typically native to Windows computers and is a diognostic tool that shows your TCP/IP setting.
    IIS on the other hand is an unrelated application (OSi 7) layer peice of softare for hosting Web services.
