       macping - A tool for pinging other RouterOS or mactelnetd devices


       mactelnet [options] <MAC-Address|hostname>


       This  tool enables you to ping other RouterOS or MAC-Telnetd enabled devices. You can ping
       either a hostname or a MAC address.  If specified, the hostname (identity) will be  looked
       up via MNDP discovery.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax.  A summary of options is included

       -f     Fast mode, do not wait before sending next ping request. The next ping will be sent
              immediately when the last ping is received. This cannot be used with -c 0

       -s     Specify the amount of bytes to send in each ping packet, up to ~1400 bytes.

       -c     Number  of packets to send before exiting. A value of 0 means unlimited packets and
              the tool must be exited with Control + C.

       -h     Show summary of options.

       -v     Show version of program.
