hping3: Is it possible to get time stapms of multiple hosts at a time?


I want to send icmp packet to get --icmp-ts to multiple hosts connected on a network. but when i type multiple host then it gives an error of "hping3: you must specify only one target host at a time". Any suggestions regarding source code modification etc?

not source code modification, but maybe just spawn multiple hping3 processes?

It depends on what you mean by "at a time". Assuming you don't mean at the exact same moment (which would be bad idea for many reasons) you can certain create a single script that checks multiple servers one after the other.

Code:
for host in host1 host2 host3 host4
do ping -c 3 $host
done
Or if you have a file with a list of servers you can do:
Code:
cat hostlistfile | while read host
do ping -c 3 $host
done
