Ping command

Recommended Posts

Currently evaluating ME 6 Pro

Installed version:


I'm trying to ping my default gateway to determine if I'm working from home or from the office.  I can ping the gateway no problem from a command prompt but the ME6 Ping Site command fails with:  Could not locate the host, <gateway IP>.   ME3 can ping it no problem.  Is this a limitation since I'm running an "Unlicensed Evaluation Copy"?

Try variations of the text you've already inserted in the "IP Address/Hostname" field, but don't include "https://" or "ftp://" or anything similar.


For example, when I ping Microsoft's web-based Outlook service, the field reads "outlook.com" but I remember, maybe a year ago, changing it from something else.
