Just done a lot of pinging. Most times it was very quick but there were some timeouts. Anyway, all of a sudden I get this and 10 seconds later all is ok....really need to do some trace routes to find where the problem
is/was though

Mad Dog

How do you do that pinging stuff.

How can you tell what is good and what is not?

Dave,

Win2K, XP - Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt.
Or go to Start--Run and enter "cmd".

At the prompt enter:

ping www.exploroz.com

(Or whatever site you want to ping.)

To copy and paste from a dos window:

Right click in the DOS window and select "Mark". Highlight the text you want and then hit the Enter key. You can then paste it.

The time taken for the return trip in milli seconds is shown. The times above for a server on the Amercian continent (I think that's where exploroz is) is damn good

I may be mad but I'm not crazy
