Or, with no ports needed: $ ping -n -t 5 -i 10 192.168.200.255 Granted you need to know the broadcast address. If you know the interface name, you can get the broadcast address from ifconfig: $ ping -n -t 5 -i 10 ` ifconfig xl0 | sed -n -e 's/^.* broadcast //p' ` BTW both ping and ifconfig are in /sbin, which is perhaps somewhat less likely to be in PATH than /bin and /usr/bin. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
