Ping is a tool used to check network connectivity between any two ports. Ping is installed by default on Windows, Apple and Linux/Unix operating systems.

It uses the ICMP protocol which has been created to check IP connectivity and get information about other machines in an IP network.

ICMP is encapsulated in an IP packet, but is considered part of the IP or Internet layer.
