Gaining Access - Server Side Attacks "PING"


When i use “ping” through terminal some IPs return the below messages. Why does this happend?

Resolving failed
Error 22

What happened?
The proxy failed to resolve site from host name, if this site was recently added please allow a few minutes before trying again.
Your IP:
Proxy IP: (ID 101349-100)

Thank you in advance


It happens because many websites do block ICMP protocol (the protocol that ping uses) so that people can’t scan it. Another reason maybe that the IP is down. Some other issues maybe permission issues on your system or firewall restrictions not allowing you to do ping.

Thanks for your answer.

You’ve requested an IP address that is part of the Cloudflare network. A valid Host header must be supplied to reach the desired website.
What can I do?

First: It just depends on how big the wesite is, but they maybe use this.
(so then you won’t see the real ip of the server)
Cloudflare can also take care of this

Second , Cloudflare is completely designed to prevent what you’re trying to do.
check cloudflare ddos protection.
If you really want to learn more about this, you should read through Cloudflare’s documentation. (This is a study in itself)
