Parameter Description


This parameter turns on or turns off Echo Request messages. Set the parameter to TRUE to turn on Echo Request messages. Set the parameter to FALSE to turn off Echo Request messages.


The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is used by operating systems in a network to send error messages, test packets, and informational messages related to the IP, such as a requested service is not available or that a host or router could not be reached. The ICMP response command sends ICMP Echo Request messages and receives ICMP Echo Response messages to determine if a host is reachable and the time it takes for packets to get to and from that host.
