Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Is this homework? Please note the LQ rule concerning homework. I repeat it here for your convenience.
Do not post homework assignments verbatim. We're happy to assist if you have specific questions or have hit a stumbling point, however. Let us know what you've already tried and what references you have used (including class notes, books, and searches) and we'll do our best to help. Keep in mind that your instructor might also be an LQ member.
Have you tried the command
on a terminal? That may help you get some answers for your assignment.
I don't understand what you're looking for. For example you can do this with your ping command:
There are many other things you can do listed in the man entry.
So that answers your question, correct?
What iam asking is while sending packets from 1 PC to another, can we limit the bandwidth ?
& for reordering , suppose i want to send 4 packets 1,2,3,4. can i change the order in which they received by 2nd PC ?
ping is originally used to measure the line, and there was no reason to restrict it. So ping itself is not able to limit bandwidth and also cannot handle reordering. I think you need to find another tool (or implement something) for that.
