I would like to ping a device using my computer.
Description/Explanation of Issue
Pinging is a great way to make sure one point on your network can reach another device.
You will need to know the IP address of the device you're trying to reach.
- Ensure that both devices are connected to the same network, this can be via a switch.
- Open up Command Prompt (if using Windows) or Terminal (if using Mac)
Type in the following command: ping [IP Address] Example: ping 10.101.50.101
- You should get a response back from the device if the computer receives a ping back.
- If you do not get a response, or you receive an error saying "Timed Out", check your physical connections or the IP address of the unit you are trying to reach.
