Ping-like program that uses TCP and/or HTTP
“echoping” is a small program to test approximatively performances of a remote host by sending it TCP “echo” or other protocol packets.
- uses the protocols echo, discard, chargen or HTTP,
- uses UDP instead of TCP for the protocols which accept it like echo,
- can repeat the test and display various measures about it,
- can use T/TCP on systems which support it.
It’s useful for checking that http servers are running and not wedged.
