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.

Thanks for that, I’m sure it’ll come in handy here one day with TMG 🙂
