    Hi all,

    My PING test often can't reach the destination. Usually I could get two
    error message.One is "request time out", and the other is "Destination host
    Would you please give me some information about the meaning of these two
    error message?
    Any help will be appreciated.

    "Request time out" means your host has a route to the destination, but the
    destination doesn't respond. "Destination host unreachable" means there is
    no route to the destination.
