Issue Description
If the IP Addresses of Devices on Both Ends of a PPP Link Are Not on the Same Network Segment, Can the Two Devices Ping Each Other?
Solution
Yes. Network Control Protocol (NCP) in Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) can be used to obtain the IP address of the peer device. Therefore, even if the IP addresses of both ends of the link are not on the same network segment, the two devices can ping each other.
