This tool sends a bunch of pings from our server to the destination
IP entered above. It is used to measure the round-trip time in milli-
seconds (ms) for messages between our server and the destination IP.
The round-trip time is usually referred to as latency. For instance, a
low latency is important for online gaming or trading financial assets
Our server is centrally located in Dallas, TX, and is directly connected
to the network of a global internet backbone provider. Hence, this
ping tool will give you a good estimate about the latency to expect for
connections between a server in the states and your specified IP
To ping directly from your IP to a destination IP, do the following:
In Windows, open a command prompt and enter
ping -n 10 x4.x3.x2.x1
In Mac/Linux, open a terminal and enter
ping -c10 x4.x3.x2.x1
where you should replace x4.x3.x2.x1 by the IP you want to ping.
You can also use a domain name instead of an IP. This command will
send 10 pings to the specified address and displays the result, though
the output will not look as nice as from our ping tool above.
