  • Protocol: Use either ICMP or TCP packets to ping the devices.
  • Ports (TCP ping only) Which ports to ping (should be formatted as a list of ports separated by a comma, for example "22,23,49").
  • Count: Number of ping packets to send.
  • Timeout Seconds to wait before declaring timeout.
  • Ttl Time to Live parameter, which tells routers when to discard this packet because it has been in the network too long (too many hops).
  • Packet Size Size of the ping packet payload to send in bytes.
