Experts,

I was wondering what is the command in DOS to ping a website like www.Yahoo.com with a packet size of 1000?  Is this correct:

Ping -l 1000 www.yahoo.com

thanks

that is correct.

ping -l 1000 www.google.com

Pinging www.l.google.com [74.125.230.113] with 1000 bytes of data:

Reply from 74.125.230.113: bytes=1000 time=59ms TTL=58
Reply from 74.125.230.113: bytes=1000 time=60ms TTL=58

okay, so then the reason why it would take longer is obviously the size that we are sending?

okay so using the same ping address with 1000 packets if we wanted to ping in for 15 times, we would use .

Ping -l 1000 -n 15 www.yahoo.com  ?

yes, larger the data size, long the round trip time.

Just for future reference, with almost every DOS command you can do /? and get all that info
ping /?

    -a             Resolve addresses to hostnames.
