When you need to ping Google to see your Internet status, In Windows you use

ping -t www.google.com

but what about to ping in Linux? Today i will tell you about pinging in Linux. I am using Ubuntu 16.04 to ping the internet.

At First, open Terminal by pressing ctrl + alt + t .

Step 1: type ping and hit the space bar once.

Step 2: now type the URL or IP address and hit enter.


You have to press ctrl + c to stop the command and show results.

In another way the ping test can be done in linux.

Step 1: ping -c4 www.google.com

Here only 4 packets only transmitted.
