Examples

The following code example demonstrates using Ping class to send an ICMP echo request synchronously and display the response.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Net;
using namespace System::Net::NetworkInformation;
using namespace System::Text;

// args[1] can be an IPaddress or host name.
int main()
{
   array<String^>^args = Environment::GetCommandLineArgs();
   
   Ping ^ pingSender = gcnew Ping;
   PingOptions ^ options = gcnew PingOptions;
   
   // Use the default Ttl value which is 128,
   // but change the fragmentation behavior.
   options->DontFragment = true;
   
   // Create a buffer of 32 bytes of data to be transmitted.
   String^ data = "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa";
   array<Byte>^buffer = Encoding::ASCII->GetBytes( data );
   int timeout = 120;
   PingReply ^ reply = pingSender->Send( args[ 1 ], timeout, buffer, options );
   
   if ( reply->Status == IPStatus::Success )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Address: {0}", reply->Address->ToString() );
      Console::WriteLine( "RoundTrip time: {0}", reply->RoundtripTime );
      Console::WriteLine( "Time to live: {0}", reply->Options->Ttl );
      Console::WriteLine( "Don't fragment: {0}", reply->Options->DontFragment );
      Console::WriteLine( "Buffer size: {0}", reply->Buffer->Length );
   }

   
}

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.NetworkInformation;
using System.Text;

namespace Examples.System.Net.NetworkInformation.PingTest
{
    public class PingExample
    {
        // args[0] can be an IPaddress or host name.
        public static void Main (string[] args)
        {
            Ping pingSender = new Ping ();
            PingOptions options = new PingOptions ();

            // Use the default Ttl value which is 128,
            // but change the fragmentation behavior.
            options.DontFragment = true;

            // Create a buffer of 32 bytes of data to be transmitted.
            string data = "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa";
            byte[] buffer = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes (data);
            int timeout = 120;
            PingReply reply = pingSender.Send (args[0], timeout, buffer, options);
            if (reply.Status == IPStatus.Success)
            {
                Console.WriteLine ("Address: {0}", reply.Address.ToString ());
                Console.WriteLine ("RoundTrip time: {0}", reply.RoundtripTime);
                Console.WriteLine ("Time to live: {0}", reply.Options.Ttl);
                Console.WriteLine ("Don't fragment: {0}", reply.Options.DontFragment);
                Console.WriteLine ("Buffer size: {0}", reply.Buffer.Length);
            }
        }
    }
}

Remarks

The Ping class attempts to send an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to a remote computer and receive information back from the computer via an ICMP echo reply message. The Ping class uses instances of the PingReply class to return information about the operation, such as its status and the time taken to send the request and receive the reply.

The Send methods return instances of the PingReply class directly. The SendAsync methods return a PingReply in the PingCompletedEventHandler method's PingCompletedEventArgs parameter. The PingReply is accessed through the Reply property.

If the value of Status is not Success, you should not use the values returned by the RoundtripTime, Options or Buffer properties. The RoundtripTime property will return zero, the Buffer property will return an empty array, and the Options property will return null.

Properties

Address

Gets the address of the host that sends the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo reply.

Buffer

Gets the buffer of data received in an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo reply message.

Options

Gets the options used to transmit the reply to an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request.

RoundtripTime

Gets the number of milliseconds taken to send an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request and receive the corresponding ICMP echo reply message.

Status

Gets the status of an attempt to send an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request and receive the corresponding ICMP echo reply message.
