Reference to above course topic 1 i have typed the program :- ping dc but it did not worked. Can any body know why. Iam running it as an administrator mode

I’m guessing you have not used the “ping” command before. It isn’t PowerShell, but happy to try and help. I’m guessing you do not have a computer named “DC” on your network.

https://www.computerhope.com/pinghlp.htm Explains the command.

Something like “ping yahoo.com” should work. It’s very easy to ping with .net as well:

function ping ($hostname='yahoo.com', $timeout = 500) {
  $Ping = [System.Net.Networkinformation.ping]::new()
  $Ping.Send($hostname, $timeout)
}


PS /> ping facebook.com
