how do i stop pinging


Very new to linux.

Trying to get the internet working on SUSE 10.0.

I typed 'ping 82.38.197.164' (my ip address) into a terminal. It went off creating a line every second (approx - can't really remember). Problem was i didn't know how to stop it. I had to quit the terminal to stop it.

Any suggestions?

Killing the terminal is fine. Another way is hitting ctrl and c (^c) which will terminate most applications.

You can also limit the number of pings right from the start by typing

$ ping -c N IP

The program will then exit after N pings.

Hint: Most commands include a "--help" option foe a quick "How-to" summary, and man <command> or info <command> will usually produce detailed instructions for command usage.

Oh, man -k term and info --apropos term will usually list commands related to term. (Where, of course, term is whatever you're looking for.)
