Lab – Testing Network Connectivity with Ping and Traceroute Topology
Image of page 1
Objectives Part 1: Build and Configure the Network Part 2: Use Ping Command for Basic Network Testing Part 3: Use Tracert and Traceroute Commands for Basic Network Testing Part 4: Troubleshoot the Topology Background / Scenario Ping and traceroute are two tools that are indispensable when testing TCP/IP network connectivity. Ping is a network administration utility used to test the reachability of a device on an IP network. This utility also measures the round-trip time for messages sent from the originating host to a destination computer. The ping utility is available on Windows, Unix-like operating systems (OS), and the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS). The traceroute utility is a network diagnostic tool for displaying the route and measuring the transit delays of packets travelling an IP network. The tracert utility is available on Windows, and a similar utility, traceroute, is available on Unix-like OS and Cisco IOS. In this lab, the ping and traceroute commands are examined and command options are explored to modify the command behavior. Cisco devices and PCs are used in this lab for command exploration. Cisco routers will use Enhanced Interior Gateway

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
