Unable to ping to rim.net

Hi

Though I am able to ping www.google.com but

I am not able to ping www.rim.net.

When I ping to www.rim.net it says Request Timeout

There is nothing like proxy setting here.

What may be the problem?

Please help me.

 

Thanks & Regards

Atul Rai

Sites can block ping. We do on our sites.

hi

Thanks for your reply.

Actually I ping www.rim.net because my signing key request was getting stucked on Receiving Response.

Status was not changing to signed.

What may be the problem?

Please help me.

Re: Unable to ping to rim.net

A ping response is what uses a ICMP protocol to check if a server is alive. It also returns the time period that it takes, and the hops required for the connection.

 

Servers can actively block this if they choose to as a pro-caution so they appear not alive to scanners/botnets
