macping(1) A tool for pinging other RouterOS or mactelnetd devices


mactelnet [options] <MAC-Address|hostname>


This tool enables you to ping other RouterOS or MAC-Telnetd enabled devices. You can ping either a hostname or a MAC address. If specified, the hostname (identity) will be looked up via MNDP discovery.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax. A summary of options is included below.
Fast mode, do not wait before sending next ping request. The next ping will be sent immediately when the last ping is received. This cannot be used with -c 0 .
Specify the amount of bytes to send in each ping packet, up to ~1400 bytes.
Number of packets to send before exiting. A value of 0 means unlimited packets and the tool must be exited with Control + C.
