Ping and Internet connection


Does ping operation require an internet connection? If no, then does it only require my laptop to be connected to LAN?

Hi,

a successful ping requires a connection to whatever you are trying to ping...

If that answer doesn't help, perhaps you could reword or expand on your question.

Cheers,

Evo2.

A ping to your localhost NIC of your laptop does not need network
While the ping needs either a wireless or wired or any network connectivity towards a remote server

Thanks
