Alright yes! yes! yes!
The last time we go together I introduced you to the Linux terminal and how to find help using any Linux command.

My Linux box will continuously ping the target until I press Ctrl + c
There's a nice little trick to get around that though:
ping 10.1.30.16 -c 10
Using the "-c" command line switch I'm able to limit my pings to a count of exactly 10.
You can also specify the amount of time your Linux box should wait before sending the next PING packet (also known as an ICMP echo request).
Yes! Now it's time to have some fun with Linux.

Kali is the standard beloved by both white-hat hackers and evil attackers alike. It offers a complete suite of attack tools that a competent hacker can use to attack and compromise systems and networks.
Today we're going to start things off with a basic introduction to the Linux terminal. You'll learn:
