to check if the ping can be done
Make sure you can check communication with the command using a CMD request (for physical IP or NetBIOS name) and that the remote host is responding without significant packet loss. If the remote computer is not responding, if its hostname is blocked, but it is blocked by its IP address, check the DNS properties of the remote computer. Keep this in mind because many of the features in our products use name resolution when trying to access remote hosts.
