Use the PathPing tool to discover the route to a remote host. PathPing combines both ping and Tracert to provide information about the number of router hops it takes to reach a host, how long it takes to get there, and link-loss information for the data packets sent. Explore parameters like –w to increase timeout values and -6 and -4 to force the use of IPv6 or IPv4.
- [Voiceover] If you've tried the ping and tracer commands…while troubleshooting a network connectivity problem,…and didn't get the resolution you desired from either,…you can use the two together with the command, pathping.…Pathping provides you with the route…to any remote host, and pings it.…The results include information about the routers…along the way, and the round-trip time value,…as well as link loss information.…Here's how to use pathping in a PowerShell window.…I'll type pathping www.linkedin.com,…and press Enter.…
For demonstration purposes,…we'll speed this up a little bit,…but know it might take three or four minutes…for this to complete on your end.…As with tracer, you'll see the hops the data takes…to get to the destination address.…As with ping, you'll get information…about how much time each hop took,…and how many packets were sent or lost during transmission.…If you get a destination host unreachable message,…it could be because the local system,…or a remote router, has no way to get to the destination.…
