Hi,

I have a question regarding ping.

Ping is disabled in my machine. In this case, how to check the network status
when ping is disabled or not working ??


Regards,

Several like fping,nmap could be employed.
But most of these are not installed by default.
If ping is disabled, most probably the alternatives will be not available for you.
>> how to check the network status
If you are looking to check the status of Oracle Listener, use
tnsping.

Thanks for your response mahesh.

By using tnsping we cannot say the network is working fine .
There should be some solution for this.

Define "network is working fine".

With tnsping you can check if the network on the ports needed by oracle is working fine.

With ping you can check if ICMP_ECHO_REQUEST are working fine.

With traceroute you can check if the routes are working fine.

All of those checks don't completely check if the network is "working fine", though.
