  • Ping a host, specifying the interval in seconds between requests (default is 1 second):

ping6 -i {{seconds}} {{host}}

  • Ping a host without trying to lookup symbolic names for addresses:

ping6 -n {{host}}

  • Ping a host and ring the bell when a packet is received (if your terminal supports it):

ping6 -a {{host}}
