Hi, 

 

We are trying to PING a PC from the NIOS as a part of our application debug process. 

Is that possible, if so please suggest me how to do it or any link or pdf that I can follow. 

 

Thank you.

Ping uses ICMP. You can google "ping protocol" for details. However, you will also need the MAC and IP addresses for the computer you are talking to. You can use the ARP protocol to get a MAC address from an IP address, or just hard code it in your software.
