Link used Ask the Experts™
On a linux server when I source ping out the interface (using 1.1.1.1 as source port of linux box)
ping -c3 -N 1.1.1.1 2.2.2.2
PING 2.2.2.2 (2.2.2.2): 56 bytes of data
sendto: 5033
sendto: 5033
snedto: 5033

I can ping 1.1.1.1 from 2.2.2.2
I can ping 1.1.1.1 from other interfaces
Question is what the 'sendto: 5033' response indicate?

The following is an invalid command...

ping -c3 -N 1.1.1.1 2.2.2.2

Open in new window


If this command actually works, you have a very odd or custom or old version of ping.

So...

1) -N - Not a ping option.

2) Providing multiple hosts (1.1.1.1 + 2.2.2.2) is unsupported by ping.

Start by providing the output of the following commands...

ping -V

ls /etc/*release*

cat /etc/*release*

Open in new window

My mistake - this is not a linux server but a pstn call server gateway, so not a conventional o/s. The -N option is for index and uses the ip associated with that particular index.
I think I found the answer - this is an error from the IP stack, not a "no response".
