    Code:
    From a DOS prompt...
    
    C:\>ping 65.85.170.164
    
    Pinging 65.85.170.164 with 32 bytes of data:
    
    Reply from 65.85.170.164: bytes=32 time=870ms TTL=113
    Reply from 65.85.170.164: bytes=32 time=770ms TTL=113
    Reply from 65.85.170.164: bytes=32 time=801ms TTL=113
    Request timed out.
    
    Ping statistics for 65.85.170.164:
        Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 3, Lost = 1 (25% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
        Minimum = 770ms, Maximum =  870ms, Average =  610ms
    To test the reachability of a device across a network, a TCP/IP ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) echo request can be sent. An ICMP echo request, generated by the Ping command.

    PING (Packet Internet Groper) is a diagnostic utility used to determine whether a computer is properly connected to devices/Internet. However, it can be used to "flood" network access of a computer.

    If you want to work out your own IP Witch_King, from a DOS prompt type winipcfg, or ipconfig.

    That IP tried to hack me, but zonealarm got it. Anyway, I could type in any ip say 192.148.66.10 and it would ping it - any random ip will work usually. That's how most hacks are done.

    Okay bad example, but anyway, its mostly a trial and error process. Cable users are easier targets as their IPs are usually fixed.

    quite true, but the same goes for DSL, though Cable IP's change like once every 3 months or somethin like that depends on your ISP i guess.

    Not that I would target anyone, although doing the CCNA has taught me heaps about hacking.

    I haven't finished the course yet, but before I started I'd been doing network related stuff for about a year. Short answer: I'm not certified yet.
