Request timeout simply means no response was received before the timeout period expired. Destination unreachable is an ICMP message generated by a router that was unable to forward the packet and sent to the source of the packet.

HI,


If a request times out, it means that your computer did not receive a response at all. It's the equivalent of calling someone and having the phone ring hundreds of times until you decide to give up.


The Destination Host Unreachable message means that a router sent you back an error and is equivalent to a busy signal.



PLS Rate if HELPS
