How to perform a tracert

Post by bOoya » Tue Oct 19, 2004 9:07 pm

How to perform a tracert:

1.) Click the start menu and choose or type (then hit enter) run

2.) In the box that pops up, type in cmd and hit enter.

3.) In the black box that pops up, type in tracert serverip (where serverip is your server IP or DNS, such as ??.nuclearfallout.net) and then hit enter.

4.) You will start to get a lot of data appearing in the black area. It should look similar to this:

Code: Select all

5.) When it's done, copy the data by right clicking on the title bar and going to "edit > select all" and then "edit > copy"

6.) Open your email and compose a new message to support@nfoservers.com, or start/continue a support request through the "Help!" page in your control panel. Paste the information that you just copied in that email and include your personal IP address AND a short description of the type of lag you are experiencing i.e. ping, loss, choke etc.!
