How do I check my connection with the server?

The ping utility is a standard tool on all modern operating systems. Ping makes it possible to verify the presence and quality of your connection with a particular host (server) and collect statistics about the connection. The utility sends echo requests (“data packets”) to the specified server and records the time it takes for a packet to reach the server and return.

The percentage of successfully delivered packets and the time required to deliver them are indications of the connection quality. The higher the percentage (less than 100% means that packets are being lost) and the smaller the delivery time, the better.

The time is indicated in milliseconds (ms) in the statistics. 1000 ms = 1 second.

Pinging with 100% delivered packets (i.e. no data loss) and delivery speed of roughly 100 ms (the smaller the number of ms, the better) is considered normal.

Ping on Windows

To run the ping utility in Windows, open a command prompt:

1. Start → Run (or Win+R).
2. In the window that appears enter cmd and click ОК.

The command to run ping looks like this:
ping <name or IP address of the server>

By default the number of echo requests sent is 4. For example:

You can specify the desired number of echo requests using the following command:
ping -n <number> <name or IP address of the server>

For example:

Ping on Linux

On the Linux operating system, ping is started in a terminal. The default key combination to open a terminal window is Ctrl+Alt+T.

The command to run ping looks like this:
ping <name or IP address of the server>

For example:

When the command is executed, packets will be sent every 1 second. To stop the command from being executed and see the statistics, click Ctrl+C.

You can also send, say, 5 packets and analyze the connection. In this case, the command would look like this:
ping -c 5 <name or IP address of the server>

For example:

Ping on Mac OS

As on Linux, ping on Mac OS is accessed from a terminal. A terminal can be opened in Finder under /Applications/Utilities. Alternatively, you can find a terminal with a search by entering “terminal” in the Spotlight search field (Cmd+Space bar to bring up the search field).

The commands for ping on Mac OS are the same as the commands on Linux.

Ping is run using the following command:
ping <name or IP address of the server>

For example:

To stop the command from being executed and see the statistics, click Ctrl+C.

To send a specified number of packets and display the statistics, use the following command:
ping -c <number> <name or IP address of the server>
