  • Ping source IP

    Hi,

    I wants to know which source IP does a router uses when it pings self IP addresses like interface or loopback addresses.

    Thanks.

    Probably whichever administrative interface you are logged in on.

      Hi,

      As per cisco press ICND1, the router will use the outgoing interface IP in the source IP field.

      I build a lab in Packet Tracer and used the command "debug ip packet" and then I ping the loopback IP address, the message showed me the source IP is same as the loopback interface IP address.
