If you use the ping utility with the parameter set to ping -t say for example, -t which continually sends ICMP packets to the destination computer or server, does that utility cause congestion on the destination network? icon_eek.gif crash.gif crash.gif :albino:

    Not possible with a regular ping from a single source ;) Simply not enough traffic.

    however ping [ip] -t -l 65500 will cause network congestion and if you ping a dial up internet user it kills thier connection, this is called ping flooding
