    then simply type
    ping -c 4 #
    where # is the ip number and 4 is the amount of packets you want to send.
    man ping, will explain it further.

    Thanx to everyone that helped/helps me on this forum!

    yeah in linux it wil ping forever unless you give the ping the -c flag.
    whenever you need help with commands refer to the man page. Its a great way to learn commands....

    why not setup cups and use linux to print ? If i had windows installed i would only use it for games . But im not a pc gamer.
