The NIPING tool could be used to check a connection during a long life time connection.

To do this test, it is required to start NIPING as a server in one host:

> niping -s -I 0 -T NIPING_SERVER_TRACE

In the remote host is is required to start NIPING as a client:

> niping -c -H <server host> -X3 -B 10 -D 30 -T NIPING_CLIENT_TRACE

The option -X3 is used to a long life connection test. It will not terminate automatic, just in case of a connection broken that may represent a problem in the network layer.

With the above configuration, every 30 seconds (-D) a package with 10 bytes (-B) will be send to the server.
