This is the command dnping that can be run in the OnWorks free hosting provider using one of our multiple free online workstations such as Ubuntu Online, Fedora Online, Windows online emulator or MAC OS online emulator
dnping - Loopbacks diagnostic packets through a remote node
dnping nodename [user pass] count
dnping nodename [options] nodename
[qsv] [-c number] [-i interval] [-p password] [-s size] [-u username] [-w timeout]
This utility sends to remote DECnet node nodename the number of packets specified by count
to test the link between the two systems. Optionally a username and password may be
specified for the connection as well as several other options. NOTE that if you dnping
another Linux box it must have dnetd running.
NOTE also that dnping is not really like an IP "ping" in that it needs a registered object
at the other end to connect to. So, just because you cannot ping a machine does not,
necessarily, mean that machine is not available, just that the MIRROR object is not
available. There is not (to my knowledge) a low-level equivalent in DECnet of the ICMP
Number of packets to send (default 10)
-d Debug mode (default off)
interval between packets in microseconds (default 0)
Access control password. If this is "-" then you will be prompted.
-q Quiet mode (default off)
size of frame to send in bytes (40 data + 68 hdr)
-t timestamps mode (default off)
access control username
Specifies a timeout (in seconds). If not response is received after this time then
dnping will abort. The default is to wait forever.
-v verbose mode (default off)
Pings 10 packets through remote node "mv3100"
# dnping mv3100 10
Make it look a bit like IP ping:
# dnping -vti 1000000 marsha
