PING is a method of testing communications from your computer to the WebAccess Project or SCADA node. It is built into Microsoft Operating Systems and just sends a short message to the target machine and hopefully gets a reply back if the TCP/IP communications are working.
1. You can PING from the Command Prompt.
Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
2. Then type: PING ipaddress
To ping the Live Demo's IP address, type: PING 22.214.171.124
You can also ping a registered URL or valid TCP/IP host name (i.e. computer name). To ping the Live Demo's URL, type: PING demo.broadwin.com
