What is PING

  Bagsey 21:27 27 Oct 2003

I keep seeing references to PING. What is it? What is it for? How does it do whatever it does?
I hope that does not sound like a daft question.

It's like knock knock. and you say whose there. that's what modems do to know that there is still a communication between them. In a simple way of saying it

Thanks for that stupid answer. I may be able to do the same for you sometime. Another thought, IF you can read this posting THANK A TEACHER.

Thanks for the pointers all you others who answered the question.

Never heard of humour? Hadn't you actually noticed I was putting your question back to the top of the forum everytime. I was interested in what the answer was and didn't want it to get lost in the realms of the forum! I won't bother in the future.
