Learn Windows XP Professional: Troubleshooting TCP/IP - Part 1 (Page 5)
September 2, 2002
Like TRACERT, Pathping shows the route taken to reach a remote system, but PATHPING does so with more detail and
allows for more functionality as well.
pathping [-g host-list] [-h maximum_hops] [-i address] [-n]
[-p period] [-q num_queries] [-w timeout] [-P] [-R] [-T]
[-4] [-6] target_name
host-list - Loose source route along host-list
maximum_hops - Maximum number of hops to search for target.
address - Use the specified source address.
-n - Do not
resolve addresses to hostnames.
-p period -
Wait period milliseconds between pings.
num_queries - Number of queries per hop.
timeout - Wait timeout milliseconds for each reply.
-P - Test
for RSVP PATH connectivity.
-R - Test
if each hop is RSVP aware.
-T - Test
connectivity to each hop with Layer-2 priority tags.
-4 - Force
-6 - Force
wrap for this week. Be sure to check back in next week for
the next article in this series which will be Part 2 of
TCP/IP in Windows XP Professional.
