|Ping||Ping sends a sequence of 10 ICMP packets to selected host.|
|Numeric output only||Does not resolve host’s IP address to its mnemonic name.|
|Record route||Enables tracking packets’ route.|
|Do not resolve hop addresses||Subsequent hop IP addresses are not resolved to mnemonic names.|
|Use ICMP ECHO instead of UDP datagrams||Enforces
|Firewall evasion mode||Enforces the same port numbers for UDP and TCP packets. Target port is not incremented with each packet sent.|
|Set the “don’t fragment” bit||Disables packet fragmentation in case the packet exceeds defined MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) value defined for the network. Exceeding the MTU value results in an error.|
