    Ping Multiple Devices from Device or Ping Devices from Server

    1. To ping from one device to multiple devices, select Tools > Diagnostics > Ping All Devices From Device.... Move your mouse to the topology map and the cursor will become a crosshair. Click on the desired source device. (Alternatively, select Ping>Multiple Devices from Device... from the Diagnostics Tool window and select the source device.)

      Alternatively, to ping from the IP/MPLSView server to multiple devices to check for connectivity from the IP/MPLSView server to the devices, select Ping>Devices from Server... from the Diagnostics Tool window.)

    2. Note that some of these options are also available from the map. Right-click a device on the map or a device in the map’s Node/Interface List legend. Then select Ping>All from Selected Router or Ping > Selected Router from the IP/MPLSView server].
    3. Select the checkboxes for the devices that will be pinged from the source device or server. To select all devices, select the arrow next to “(All Devices)” and select Check All.
    4. Note that the Loopback IP address is used by default when pinging from device to device, but the Management IP address is used by default when pinging from the server to devices.
    5. The source interface to use for ping can be specified by selecting “Use source interface” and then selecting the source interface from the drop-down.
    6. Click Run to submit the ping request.

      Note: This process may take more time simply because a ping is being performed between the source router and every other router
