Re: what is difference betwwen request time out and time to live

Request timed out means that the target host did not respond to the PING in time. In other words, there was too much of a delay between the time that the source host sent the echo and the time that the echo reply was sent back -- if it was ever sent back.

TTL exceeded means that the IP TTL counter, which is decremented by 1 with every hop a packet takes, has reached 0. Usually due to a routing loop.
