     58=== Ping ===
     59
     60{{{
     61ping [-r] <ip-address>
     62}}}
     63
     64The {{{ping}}} command sends an ICMP Echo message to the specified IP address and displays the response (or timeout message). With the {{{-r}}} option it repeatedly sends the Echo message every second, until you terminate it with Ctrl-Q.

    5768=== Web server (websrv) ===
     69
     70{{{/app/websrv}}} is a trivial web server which serves the contents of the {{{/data/web}}} directory. You need to start it manually from the command line. By default it listens on port 8080 or you can change this by starting it with the {{{-p <port>}}} option.
     71
    5872=== Telnet server (remcons) ===
     73
     74Is a telnet-like server. It is started automatically and listens on port 2223 and allows you to connect to the system from outside (e.g. from UN*X using the {{{telnet}}} command). It does not actually implement any Telnet protocol features (it just pipes the data through). It can only input and output text data, so pseudo-graphical applications (Tetris, Editor) and special keys won't work.
