RMCPING(8)		    System Manager Commands		    RMCPING(8)

NAME
       rmcpping	- send RMCP Ping to network hosts

SYNOPSIS
       rmcpping	[OPTION...] destination

DESCRIPTION
       rmcpping	uses the RMCP Ping request datagram to elicit an RMCP Pong re-
       sponse from a remote host. The utility can be used to verify if	a  re-
       mote  host  supports RMCP or IPMI. The initial starting sequence	number
       will be randomized.

       rmcpping	will return 0 to the environment if it receives	atleast	1  re-
       sponse from the remote host. Otherwise, it exits	with a value of	1.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available

       -h     Output help menu.

       -V     Output version.

       -c count
	      Stop after sending count packets.

       -i interval
	      Wait  interval  seconds between sending each packet. The default
	      is to wait for one second	between	each packet.

       -I interface address
	      Set source address to specified interface	address. Argument  may
	      be numeric IP address or name of device.

       -t timeout
	      Time  to	wait  for a response, in seconds. Default is five sec-
	      onds.

       -v     Verbose output.

       -s num Specify an initial starting sequence number. The default	is  to
	      use a random initial sequence number.

       -d     Turn on debugging.

KNOWN ISSUES
       It has been observed that some remote BMCs can get "confused" and delay
       packet responses	if duplicate packets (with duplicate sequence numbers)
       are  sent  in succession	very quickly. There is no known	way to cleanly
       deal with a "confused" BMC other	than the wait awhile.

       Unlike ping(8),	local  network	devices	 (e.g.	127.0.0.1)  cannot  be
       "pinged".
