Server IP: 126.96.36.199
can help to let you know if you can actually send and receive data to a certain IP.
In this case, you could learn if you are being blocked from an IP via firewall.
The first step to Ping, Get the Command Prompt
! Follow a simple path of Start menu>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.
After it opens you will see it something
In order to Ping, you will need the Server IP
so open up your GF folder and look for "Connect.ini
It will open in Notepad and have the full server number, you only need the IP
, so watch what you have carefully. I have highlighted
what you need.
(Note- Aeria has since changed the server IP to 188.8.131.52)
Back to the Prompt, you cannot
copy and paste, so remember that number or have it float in the background. Now enter the following. "ping 184.108.40.206
" then enter, no fancy text.
Now sit back for a few secs and watch it PING PING PING PING. Four times
it will send, lets hope you ace the test! You will get your results in seconds, with sent, received, and time taken in Ms milliseconds.
*Quoted from spymoose*Bytes = how many were sent, 92ms = how long it took to hit the gate, TTL = time to live packet, if you don't hit a hop in 54ms the packet dies*/quote*
Thats a ping.
ping will look like so.
