Error send message to a remote system

I am analyzing snoop output and want to send "Hello world" to a remote system. I want to see if the message received is encrypted or not.

can I use ping to send a text message?

like ping "helloworld" <IP Addr>

Please help.

Thank you

man ping


Code:
     -p pattern
             You may specify up to 16 ``pad'' bytes to fill out the packet you
             send.  This is useful for diagnosing data-dependent problems in a
             network.  For example, ``-p ff'' will cause the sent packet to be
             filled with all ones.

-p in my ping (solaris 5.8) is to specify port and not pattern

-p port
Set the base UDP port number used in probes. This
option is used with the -U option. The default
base port number is 33434. The ping utility
starts setting the destination port number of UDP
packets to this base and increments it by one at
each probe.

nslookup should be sending a UDP/IP DNS queries, give it some time.
