Ping is a utility used to test whether devices are connected over an IP network and to measure how long it takes for a reply to be received after the message is sent, using a protocol called Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP).
If ICMP is enabled on the destination interface, you can ping the IP address of a FortiGate interface to test connectivity between your computer and the FortiGate. You can also use the CLI command
execute ping to test connectivity between your FortiGate and both internal and external devices.
