    With the help of NIPING we can analyze the network connection between any two machines running SAP software.

    Here is example:

    Frontend PC and application server
    Two application servers, perhaps belonging to different SAP systems
    Application server and database server or live cache server
    RFC server or client programs and application server

    The machines can be connected either by a wide area network (WAN) or local area network (LAN).

    In contrast to the normal PING command, NIPING operates on the TCP socket layer, which is the same layer used by SAP application programs. Therefore, NIPING can be used to identify also errors related to the TCP and socket implementation on the platform.
