Either you install it directly via Cydia or, in case you've installed
apt-get and sudo before (via Cydia) then use "sudo apt-get install ping"

Now my personal advice: If you don't know how to install anything on a
linux-based system (which you don't) and don't know what "command not
found" means (which you don't actually), then please stay away from the
command-line for now, read a book about linux and then get back. You'll
just screw up some things

iphone terminal is majorly different from linux systems terminals. i just
assumed ping would be there, like installed the basic commands with
terminal but hey who cares thanks for your help. i cant find it on cydia,
but i love apt-get so ill use aptitude to get it.

you need to install "inetutils" in cydia in order to get the network
commands to work.

The Unix terminal of the iPhone is not at all different from a Linux based
systems terminal (I like Ubuntu :P)
But seriously there's no need to be so hostile, let the dude ask his
questions.
Install inetutils from cydia, or if you're feeling brave, you can
run 'apt-get install inetutils' from the Mobile Terminal,
Or if you're like me, you can ssh into your iDevice and do it from another
computer (My preferred method) More fun that way ;)

Good day!
