IF PING IS A WAND , WHAT SPELL YOU WILL CAST ONLY DEPENDS ON YOU.
Ping is the favorite tool of network administrators for testing such things as connectivity, discovery, response time and so on over networks. Sadly, there’s a sarcasm about being a hacker which is “ping a server” then “I’m a Hacker !” I was always hoping people not to think less about every tool which is useful in its own way. What I wanna point out is ping is a wand so you should cast your spell well or wand would be just rod.
The speed of light is 299,792 km/s which is 299,792 km/1000 ms in vacuum. In glass it’s slower; about 200,000 km/1000 ms (Fiber optics refractive index of 1.5). So we can say;
1 km/0.005 ms
10 km/0.05 ms
100 km/0.5 ms
1000 km/5 ms
10000 km/50 ms
But , when we ping our web server hosted in Bangkok, we’ve the average time 29.864 milliseconds which is go and back round-trip-time.
The distance between Yangon and Pennsylvania, USA is 13,594.87 km. For light to travel from Yangon to Pennsylvania and back from Pennsylvania to Yangon would take about 68 milliseconds.
But, when we ping our isecom web server hosted in Pennsylvania, we’ve the average time 269.488 milliseconds which is go and back round-trip-time.
