Pinging a Minecraft server

What's the best way to setup a home network? Why should I care about BGP?

Pinging a Minecraft server

So I have been trying to test connection to my friend's Minecraft Server through CLI, but the request times out everytime.

Even if you can't give me any pointers on how to make it work, could anyone help me find out why it doesn't work?

Thanks

Minecraft Servers have no built-in Standard Ping Response as far as I know. You can still check if the port is open in many ways though... I would go about this in PHP using fsockopen. A little GOOGLE review should find you something.

In minecraft you have this list of servers with serverinfo next to them so I guess there should be a way to ping them, try googling a document about the minecraft protocol.

I'm just thinking out loud now. What if you had had something running like wireshark and can see what is being sent and received. Just to mess around, you could do a nmap to your host pc and throw it into a text document. After that connect to the minecraft server, then run nmap again to the host pc, throw that into a .txt document. Compare them and see if any new ports have been opened.

I had the wrong impression. Please disregard previous post.

Just a hunch, but wouldn't Minecraft servers disable ping requests? I mean, we all know the ping-of-death is well, no pun intended, but dead, but somebody might attempt it once again. It just seems like a logical precaucion to take, IMHO.
