SYNOPSIS

ssmping [ -46v ] [ -I interface ] [ -c count ] [ -s size ] host

ssmpingd

DESCRIPTION

ssmping and ssmpingd are network level multicast management tools that can be used to check whether one can receive multicast packets via SSM from a host. The host target given to ssmping must run the ssmpingd daemon, which listens on UDP port 4321 for IPv4 and IPv6 unicast requests. When it receives one, it responds to a well known SSM multicast group which ssmping just have joined. Depending on whether the request was made with IPv4 or IPv6, the group is 232.43.211.234 or ff3e::4321:1234 respectively.

OPTIONS

For ssmpingd there are no options. For ssmping the options are as follows.
-4 Force IPv4
-6 Force IPv6
-v Print client and server version information.
-I interface
  Interface to join on
-c count
  Stop after sending (and receiving) count requests (and replies)
-s size
  Request replies to have a size of size bytes

SEE ALSO
