Ping is a network utility program used to test if a remote (or local) host is running and can be connected to. It is also used to measure the round-trip delay (or latency) in communicating with the host and the rate of packet loss.
- Choose number of times to ping or set continuous mode (keep pinging until stopped)
- A unique ping flood mode which provides a rapid visual display of packets sent and received and shows how quickly the host or server is responding
- Set interval between ICMP ping requests (as low as 0 seconds)
- Control the size of ICMP packets to send
- Set Time To Live (TTL) to control the number of hops the packet can go through
- Set timeout
- Options to disable to fragmentation of packets and allow pinging broadcast IP addresses
- Save and load hosts and IP addresses
- Email ping results
Ping Free supports both 3G and Wifi connections. Currently, only IPv4 is supported as IPv6 is not widely available on Android phones yet.
