I am testing the availability of nodes in a netwok. For that I use ping command and see whether that machine responds back.
However, if a machine is not reachable ping should show me that that "Destination host not reachable". But if it can, it should return back with the response message. But there is no message which is being received!
What does this imply? - That ping is not enabled on that particular machine but reachable on the network ?
