Usefull network commands Win/Unix

Windows commands
  • ping {hostname}
    Lets you check whether your internet connection is alive or lost
    Example : ping www.yourserver.com
* Rudedog's tip - use the -a parameters to resolve known IP address to host name. Useful for finding out a clients ISP name.
Example: ping -a 66.135.39.39
  • tracert {hostname}
    Lets you trace packets and find if your connection is broken beyond your ip address. Also can be used to track the number of hops to get to the hostname
  • Example: tracert www.yourservername.com
  • ipconfig
    Find out your ip address, your network interfaces, transferred and received data information
    Example : ipconfig
  • nslookup {hostname}
    Find out the dns name resolves to a IP - a way to test your dns server
    Example: nslookup www.your_server_name.com
  • netstat -a
    Find out all the open ports on your machine
    Example: netstat -a
  • netstat -nt

    Example: netstat -nt
