fping 3 README -------------- fping is a program to send ICMP echo probes to network hosts, similar to ping, but much better performing when pinging multiple hosts. fping has a long long story: Roland Schemers did publish a first version of it in 1992 and it has established itself since then as a standard tool. Current maintainer: David Schweikert <firstname.lastname@example.org> Website: http://fping.org/ Mailing-list: https://groups.google.com/group/fping-users Installation ------------ If you want to install fping from source, proceed as follows: 1. Run ./configure with the correct arguments (see: ./configure --help) 2. Run make; make install 3. Make fping either setuid, or, if under Linux: sudo setcap cap_net_raw+ep fping 4. Have a look at the fping(8) manual for usage help (fping -h will also give a minimal help output) IPv6 support ------------ You can can compile fping with support for IPv6 addresses. A separate binary is used for that, called fping6. To build it, use ./configure --enable-ipv6 (possibly combined with --enable-ipv4 to also build fping for IPv4). E.g.: # ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-ipv4 --enable-ipv6 # make # make install # sudo setcap cap_net_raw+ep /usr/local/bin/fping* Credits ------- Original author: Roland Schemers (email@example.com) Previous maintainer: RL "Bob" Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org) Initial IPv6 Support: Jeroen Massar (email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org) Other contributors: see ChangeLog
