Ping and Trace Route

This feature can be found under Tools – Ping/Trace in the main menu.

Ping sends out an echo request to a specific computer on the network. It can be used to check communication links or to check whether the specific host exists or is running:

Trace route allows you to determine the path a packet is taking across the Internet. It looks up each machine along the path to a destination host and displays the corresponding name and IP address for that hop. Next to the host name is the number of milliseconds to get to that host.
