Module 1 – Ping Task

leave a comment »

I’m against downloading stuff I don’t need, so I simply used windows command prompt to ping curtin. For those who want to try this, either: Start > Run… > “cmd.exe” or Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. Then type: ping curtin.edu.au

It took an average of 80 milliseconds for my ping to do a round trip to curtin. This is pretty much what I expected after doing the traceroute test in the last post.
