FORTINET COMMAND LINE - PING COMMAND



I am using a Fortinet 310...I believe.  This unit is running multiple VDOMS and is working well.   I attempting to ping from the Command line the other day and could not locate the ping command.

It used to be found via execute, that is,

# execute ping .....

This no longer works....any ideas???

Also...can you source a ping from a Fortinet like Cisco.
