How do I ping a device to confirm is reachable by Winscript


You can use the ping command to verify the connectivity between two network devices that connected on the same network. This will confirm that your computer that is running WinScript will be able to "see" and reach the controller.

On the computer that is running WinScript, complete the following:

  1. To bring up the run dialog, press the Windows key + R.
  2. Type cmd and press Enter.
  3. Type ping <IP address> and press Enter. The IP address is XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, where XXX is a number between 0 and 255. For example, to ping, you would type ping

If the ping is successful, you should receive replies from the address that you are trying to ping. If the ping is unsuccessful, you need to diagnose your network setup further.


If the ping is not successful you will receive a timeout message and a "Host Unreachable message"


To verify if your local network adapter is working, you can ping, which is a loopback address. The loopback address is a virtual network port for most operating systems.
