Is there any ping cmd or tool that allows for pinging an ip address thats not a default port? i.e 192.168.xxx.x on port 1521 Basically we are having a problem where I am timing out when I try to hit an oracle database on another server. I can ping the server IP and it returns 100%, but a tnsping of the db times out. Oracle uses port 1521 for communication. I think this is not feasable because probably the pinging of an ip of a server is on a designated port.
