Ok, what do you mean you dont get any output? No text at all?
I dont have access to a linux terminal at the moment, but what you could do is to specify the network interface to use.
If you type ifconfig you should get a list of all the network interfaces. Then look for the one where your source ip address is at. Then you use that interface name as the parameter to the -I command.
Ok, did your interface name was eth0 (from ifconfig)?
I think it will not respond until timing out if no response was given, so it could take a few seconds before there is any output.
Does ping work without the -I parameter?
