Because the technician needs to do this remotely. You can't remotely do a ipconfig /all on a computer.

ipconfig tells one information about network interfaces available on the computer it is used on--this is local.

Provided the machine you are locally using is configured with a network interface correctly, one should be able to ping another machine by name which will provide two things. First, it should resolve the name to an IP address using DNS and second, it should actually exercise the remote machine address by sending it network packets that it should respond to if it is configured to reply to ping packets as is common. The ping packet replies should give one good feedback that the system in question is up and available via one or more of its network interfaces.

Agree. ipconfig/all can only be done on the local machine console. In order to do anything remote, you'd first have to verify the IP address, no?
Of the 4 choices, ping is the only option to do anything remotely
