       aecho - send AppleTalk Echo Protocol packets to network hosts


       aecho [ -c count ] ( address | nbpname )


       aecho repeatedly sends an Apple Echo Protocol (AEP) packet to the host specified by the
       given AppleTalk address or nbpname and reports whether a reply was received. Requests are
       sent at the rate of one per second.

       address is parsed by atalk_aton(3).  nbpname is parsed by nbp_name(3). The nbp type
       defaults to `Workstationยด.

       When aecho is terminated, it reports the number of packets sent, the number of responses
       received, and the percentage of packets lost. If any responses were received, the minimum,
       average, and maximum round trip times are reported.


       Check to see if a particular host is up and responding to AEP packets:
