I want to ping my host on a port other then default icmp port. Is there any application which I can host on my linux server which send icmp replies while listening on specified port. Actually i want to know TTL of my system from external world. I am not talking about port scanners

there is no default icmp port. icmp is not tcp/ip. it doesn't have a "port".

what do you mean by ttl?

I mean response time.

Is not there any ping like application/software where i can mention port?
