  • Tracert and Ping

    Hi,

    Does anyone use software for tracerts and pings? Or just use the run command?

    I like to use both the Network Utility built into OS X and http://www.traceroute.org so I can see the route and pings from both my computer and from peering points around the world.

        A little known command you can use under Windows is pathping, which does a similar job to tracert but is orders of magnitude faster.

        Compare
        tracert vbulletin.com
        with
        pathping vbulletin.com
