    Unable to ping a particular website
    « on: March 01, 2018, 01:53:20 PM »
    Is anybody else able to ping ravib.com ?

    It used to work before but all I get back is Request timed out now. Other sites are fine.

    If you are able to ping that website, why can't I?

    Were you banned/ kicked perhaps ? ?

    Or are you the Site admin lookin for hits ? ?

      As far as I know, I am not banned. No reason to be banned. I don't flood the site.

      I am not the site admin. I just ping the site in batch to see if it is running. After it establishes a ping, the batch ends.

        Not a batch issue. I tried this at the command prompt as well. Same problem.

        The webpage loads fine but just can't ping it.

        The site/server is configured to ignore pings.
        I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

          That is possible though pings used to work. The reason I ping the site is that his program, WeatherMate requires ravib.com operational to function. (see attachment)

          If the ping is successful, the batch starts WeatherMate and ends otherwise it loops every 60 seconds and pings again.

          They probably changed the config because somebody kept pinging them every 60 seconds. :P

          I can't ping it.

          The website http://ping.eu/ping/ can't ping it.

          My VPS cannot ping it.

          etc.

            I can't ping it.

            The first two posters were able to ping the site. That is unless pinging was recently blocked from certain IP/countries. I don't know.

            Honestly I doubt they pinged it. They probably visited it in their browser.

            Here is another thought.
            A. Some web sites just do not line pings.
             OR
            B. The configuration of a router or firewall might stop pings for some sites.

            In either case, you can use another kind of tool to find out if a site is working.
