Generate Pings Through Arduino To Ethernet Shield


Pardon me if this has been discussed elsewhere before.

The ethernet w5500 shield is part of a project i'm working on, And for each unit i need to test if my w5500 is fully functional by initializing it then manually ping from my PC.

However, I would like to know if the arduino can somehow generate auto pings to the Ethernet shield address for my convenience (I'm trying to write a fully automatic test software), As the result of the ping will be shown in the serial monitor.

Thanks & Regards.
