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?

Cheers!

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.
