The CTCP ping command and reply has the following command format and functions.

The Command:

/ctcp TheNick ping

will return client ping (network delay and latency) information about TheNick.

SYSTEM TheNick CTCP: PING reply 2secs 
SYSTEM AnotherNick CTCP: PING reply 15secs

and other variations, depending on the client.

If TheNick is using a Mibbit Client, the response is always sent.

  • Because of the functionality of the Mibbit client, calculations are based on the Mibbit backend server, not true Client-to-Client timing.

It needs to be said, that some clients allow this information to be added to, modified in such a way to lie about the ping, or even block it from responding at all.
