In the example above we are pinging the PC name MV2014R2 and we are seeing if Windowviewer(view) is running. 

We get a response that says "Success!" This means Windowviewer was found running. It will also tell you how long the communication took. In this example it was 16ms.

If Windowviewer is not running. You will get this message.

It will tell you it found the Suitelink service but view is not running.

You can also slsping to a DAServer.
