Jump to solution

Dear Experts,

Do you know if it's possible to make an extended ping (send a ping from an specific interface of one node to another nothe)?

 

Thanks, Miquel

Generally the answer is no.  However there are tools e.g. "rping" that if you set up on your devices you can then make use of in order to implement what you are wanting.  Some devices may implement this feature as part of their SNMP MIB and the QA SPI takes advantage of this for some devices, or it can make use of a deployed remote agent that it can talk to to implement this.

So there was ways to do this, but they do involve setting things up ahead of time and not all devices will implent the capability.

  All the best
