pinging remote server using a mac

what is the mac equivalent to ping and where do i find it - as i'm trying to help a friend diagnose problems on his connection to his web site.



RE: pinging remote server using a mac

Another great program is whatroute. It is freeware and was at least at one point available on Apple's OS 9 cd if you did a custom install.

What's new in this version:

*    PING Distribution Graph
*    MultiPing - successively ping each hop in a trace
*    LAN monitor - port of the Unix tcpdump command
*    Address Scan - function for finding all active hosts on a network
*    ICMP traceroute probes - maybe useful for getting out through a firewall.

Product Description:
Trace Internet Paths
PING Remote Hosts
DNS Query

Best of luck,
