How to PING and test your TCP/IP connection?

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
