Interface Ping


The Diagnostics page allows you to issue diagnostic commands to the selected Mako and then view the diagnostic results.

The “Interface Ping” diagnostic command allows you to ping IP addresses using the selected Mako’s interfaces. This may be helpful to test if the interfaces are working properly.
