Binary packages built by this source
- iputils-arping: Tool to send ICMP echo requests to an ARP address
The arping command acts like the standard ping command except it pings
a machine by its ARP address instead of its IP address. It is typically
used to locate a machine if its hardware address is known but its IP
address is unknown
- iputils-clockdiff: Measure the time difference between networked computers
Clockdiff computes the difference between the time of the machine on
which it is called and the time of other network-accessible machines.
The time differences measured by clockdiff are obtained using a
sequence of ICMP TSTAMP messages which are returned to the sender by
the IP module in the remote machine.
- iputils-ping: Tools to test the reachability of network hosts
The ping command sends ICMP ECHO_REQUEST packets to a host in order to
test if the host is reachable via the network.
This package includes a ping6 utility which supports IPv6 network
- iputils-tracepath: Tools to trace the network path to a remote host
The tracepath utility is similar to the traceroute utility, but also
attempts to discover the MTU of the path.
This package also includes tracepath6 and traceroute6 utilities, which
may be used on IPv6 networks.
