I found out today that the command PING on Windows has some new options (thanks Sean). Did you know that you can now ping from a different source address than your default address? Well you can. If you use the –S option you can specify the source address for a system that has multiple IP’s assigned to it.
Apparently this snuck into the PING command some time back, but was limited to IPv6 only – now in Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2 it’s available for IPv4 as well.
I think it goes to show that we should not assume that new versions of old commands don’t have new options that could be pretty cool.
