Use this command to perform an ICMP
ECHO request (also called a ping) to a host by specifying its IPv6 address, using the options configured in ping-options.
Pings are often used to test IP-layer connectivity during troubleshooting.
To use this command, your administrator account’s access control profile must have at least
r permission to the
sysgrp area. For details, see Permissions.
|Enter either the IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the host.||No default.|
This example pings a host with the IP address
execute ping6 2607:f0b0:f:420::
The CLI displays the following:
PING 2607:f0b0:f:420:: (2607:f0b0:f:420::): 56 data bytes
After several seconds, no output appears. The administrator halts the ping by pressing Ctrl+C. The CLI displays the following:
--- 2607:f0b0:f:420:: ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss
The results indicate the host may be down, or there is no route between the FortiWeb appliance and
2607:f0b0:f:420::. To determine the point of failure along the route, further diagnostic tests are required, such as traceroute.
