Linux extended ping


Recommended Posts



The way I'm reading your post is that you just want to keep pinging the IP address until you break the command. You should be able to just use ping <ip address> and it will keep going until you ctrl+c to interrupt it. If you only want it to ping a certain number of times then quit on its own, use the -c option, like this: ping -c 10 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx


Example 1:


  -- Will continuously send pings to the IP until you stop it.


Example 2:

ping -c 50

  -- Will send ping requests 50 times and then end.


BTW, that IP was from google.com to be used as an example.
