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.
