Ping -w command not working on Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    On Windows 8 I noticed that  Ping -w timeout (Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply) is not working. e.g.

    If you ping a bogus IP address like the one below it should timeout for 60 sec.  On Windows 7 it works but on Windows 8 it fails to timeout for 60 sec.

    Ping -w 60000

  • Hi Chester,

    How is this not a programming question?  This is a scripting question which is a form of programming.  Are you suggesting that to be a programming question, it has to be native/C++?  How about if this was a PowerShell question?  What about HTML or JavaScript?

    Ping -w is not working.  I just found this out as well and mnk63 has been waiting for over a year for an answer.
