I needed to run some tests. I know how to run ping and tracert but running these alone in their default state doesn't yield all that much useful information.
I wanted to run more extensive tests and to save the results. I figured that someone out there had probably already created a batch file (.bat) to do this and I was right!
You can get a great one here:
====== snip ====== @echo off cls echo. echo Run PING to %1 with small and large packets echo Run TRACERT to %1 echo Write output to c:\pingrpt.txt echo Open c:\pingrpt.txt for editing echo Optionally delete c:\pingrpt.txt if "%1"=="" echo No remote host was specified... terminating. if "%1"=="" goto end echo. echo Working . . ping -f -n 10 -l 1464 %1 > c:\pingrpt.txt echo Working . . . echo ======================================================== >> c:\pingrpt.txt ping -f -n 10 -l 12 %1 >> c:\pingrpt.txt echo Working . . . . echo ======================================================== >> c:\pingrpt.txt tracert %1 >> c:\pingrpt.txt echo Working . . . . . edit c:\pingrpt.txt echo. del c:\pingrpt.txt /p :end ====== snip ======
