Windows Xp Command Prompt

I happen to really like tracert. Which traces an ip back to where it is located. This is what you would type:

In the command propmt:

tracert puttheiphere

Enter

That's all you have to do.

I like using the ping command to test my network connection.

For example at the prompt type: ping yahoo.com

Then you'll see if you're on-line.

ok, so I'm a little off topic with this one, but I just have to comment that I like the Linux "finger" command. We got a good laugh out of that one in class. ;)

Ah yes, the source of a beloved but long obsolete phrase I've had stuck in my head for years.

"finger me for my public key"

(ObHistory: finger is much older than Linux. It was first implemented on WAITS (or maybe TENEX) in 1971.)
