English term or phrase: Ping
networking software description:

"A Ping application that lets you test communications with other hosts on the network"
rick
Ping o búsqueda de direcciones de Internet
Explanation:
PING is a facility, which allows the user to determine whether it is possible to connect to a particular host computer.

In Cisco Glossaries you can find it translated as "búsqueda de direcciones de Internet", and that is exactly what it is. You can say "una aplicación de búsqueda de direcciones de Internet" or just use the English word "ping". This last option is the most usual one in Spanish documentation. I suggest a mix of the two options, that is:

"Una aplicación de búsqueda de direcciones de Internet (Ping)..."

Hope it helps!

Una aplicación Ping que le permite probar (examinar)


Explanation:
las comunicaciones con otros nodos en la red". I used "nodos" (nodes) which involve all types of hosts. Link 1 uses instead "puntos", and "monitoreo" instead of "examinación", but that sounds Spanglish to me...cute though: "Monitor yapm 0.0.5 Yet Another Ping Monitor es una aplicación escrita en Perl para monitoreo contínuo de diferentes puntos de la red". Good luck :)

ping (aplicación ping)


Explanation:
- PING: Action which is intended to reveal the arrival time of a message from one computer to another.
Utilitario que determina el tiempo de llegada de un aviso de una PC a otra
(Babylon.com)

- PING Packet Internet Grouper. Rastreador de Paquetes Internet. Programa utilizado para comprobar si un Host está disponible. Envía paquetes de control para comprobar si el anfitrión está activo y los devuelve.
http://www.revistaenlinea.com/glosario.htm

En la jerga informática, se utiliza el mismo vocablo inglés "ping"

Yo traduciría el parrafo completo de esta forma:
"La aplicación PING permite verificar el correcto funcionamiento de los canales de comunicación entre distintos servidores de la red"

Suerte!! :)
