Used to test the connection once you have entered the configuration
data. You can test using either Ping or C-Echo (DICOM Verify). Ping
tests the connection across the network; C-Echo additionally tests

not to respond to Ping or C-Echo commands. Check with your IT
department or PACS Administrator to determine how your network
handles these functions.
