3Com WX2200 3CRWX220095A Switch User Manual

Pinging Another
To verify that another device in the network can receive IP packets sent by
the WX switch, use the following command:
ping host [count num-packets] [dnf] [flood] [interval time]
[size size] [source-ip ip-addr | vlan-name]
To ping a device that has IP address, type the following command:
WX1200# ping
PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=0.769 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=0.628 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=255 time=0.676 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=255 time=0.619 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=5 ttl=255 time=0.608 ms
--- ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0 errors, 0% packet loss
In this example, the ping is successful, indicating that the WX switch has
IP connectivity with the other device.
A WX switch cannot ping itself. MSS does not support this.
(For information about the command options, see the Wireless LAN
Switch and Controller Command Reference.)
Logging In to a
Remote Device
From within an MSS console session or Telnet session, you can use the
Telnet client to establish a Telnet client session from a WX switch’s CLI to
another device. To establish a Telnet client session with another device,
use the following command:
telnet {ip-addr | hostname} [port port-num]
To establish a Telnet session from WX switch WX1200 to,
type the following command:
WX1200# telnet
