ping -v is now deprecated which was useful for sending ICMP with TOS field values. Try ping -Q as alternative from a UNIX machine.


ping –Q

-Q tos Set Quality of Service -related bits in ICMP datagrams.  tos can be

either decimal or hex number.  Traditionally (RFC1349), these  have

been  interpreted  as: 0 for reserved (currently being redefined as

congestion control), 1-4 for Type of Service  and  5-7  for  Prece-

dence.   Possible  settings  for Type of Service are: minimal cost:

0x02, reliability: 0x04, throughput: 0x08, low delay: 0x10.  Multi-

ple  TOS  bits should not be set simultaneously.  Possible settings

for special Precedence range from priority (0x20)  to  net  control

(0xe0).   You must be root (CAP_NET_ADMIN capability) to use Criti-

cal or higher precedence value.  You cannot set bit 0x01 (reserved)

unless  ECN  has  been  enabled  in  the kernel.  In RFC2474, these

fields has been redefined as 8-bit  Differentiated  Services  (DS),

consisting  of: bits 0-1 of separate data (ECN will be used, here),

and bits 2-7 of Differentiated Services Codepoint (DSCP).
