Execute an ICMP echo request from the Lantronix Local Manager to a specific IP address. From the port context, this command attempts to ping the dedicated device IP address. If the dedicated device IP address is not configured, it will attempt to ping the management IP address.

The basic syntax for ping is the command followed by an IP address. Hostnames can be used if DNS is configured. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
The following options are available when ping is run from the system resource:
When run from the port resource, the following options are available:
Only specific IP addresses (no broadcast) are supported. Hostnames are supported if DNS is configured using config system ip.
Default routes are used (Management Ethernet or PPP/VPN if active).
A successful ping looks like this:
[admin@LantronixLM]# ping 172.30.5.48 PING 172.30.5.48 4 transmitted, 4 received, 0% loss, avg 0.565 ms
A failed ping looks like this:
[admin@LantronixLM]# ping 10.10.10.1 PING 10.10.10.1 4 transmitted, 0 received, 100% loss, time 3068ms ERROR
If DNS is configured, ping will resolve the hostname before pinging:
[admin@LantronixLM]# ping uplogix.com PING 126.96.36.199 4 transmitted, 4 received, 0% loss, avg 15 ms
If DNS is not configured, domain name resolution will fail and not host will be pinged:
[admin@LantronixLM]# ping uplogix.com No IP address to ping.
A verbose option is available if you'd like to view each response:
[admin@LantronixLM]# ping 188.8.131.52 -v PING 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=1 ttl=117 time=5.98 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_seq=2 ttl=117 time=5.96 ms 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=3 ttl=117 time=5.95 ms 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=4 ttl=117 time=5.93 ms --- 184.108.40.206 ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3002ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 5.928/5.953/5.977/0.017 ms
