  1. general network question on ping

    I have two networked servers their ip addresses are: 47.50.2.150 and
    47.50.2.151 with subnetmask of 255.255.255.0.

    the result from ping each other is: ping -t server2

    Pinging server2[47.50.2.150] with 32 bytes of data:

    what does it mean to have a time =86 ms and -16 ms?

    thanks.

    In the first case, the answer to the ping came 86 ms after the ping was
    sent.

    In the second one, the answer came before the question... you've probably
    found a hole in the space-time continuum :-)

    It must be some timing error in your system, you of course can't get
    negative times for a ping.

    hey thanks...

    yea, there is a patch from AMD to fix the negative value. it's surprising
    to know it is not the nic...
