USAGE OF PING AND IFCONFIG COMMANDS IN LINUX

by Balasundaram

Hi ….

Today I am going to say some of the usages of the ping and the ifconfig command in linux systems…..

1)ifconfig

The ifconfig command is used to find the ip address of the system which we are working and has many

options in it which can be used to change the ip address or to connect to a network etc………

2)ping

The ping command is used to check whether the ip address specified as a argument of the ping command

is connected to the network in which our system works ….

If it is connected to the network then it receives packets from the system………………

That’s it for today

with regards………….

JKBS……………..
