    Hello Everyone,

    Recently I have been using a handy tool to test the network connection on a desktop computer connected to a LAN network.

    At work we've had a lot of network drop outs and I found the following web based tool quite handy for testing the connection. It's Java Based so you will need that installed first to use!

    It's called Knoppix Web Based Network Diagnostic tool

    For Java download click here


    "This java applet was developed to test the reliablity and operational status of your desktop computer and network connection. It does this by sending data between your computer and this remote NDT server. These tests will determine: "


    "The slowest link in the end-to-end path (Dial-up modem to 10 Gbps Ethernet/OC-192)
    The Ethernet duplex setting (full or half);
    If congestion is limiting end-to-end throughput.
    It can also identify 2 serious error conditions:
    Duplex Mismatch
    Excessive packet loss due to faulty cables.
    A test takes about 20 seconds. Click on "start" to begin"


    here is the link http://10.161.3.77:7123/

    When I was doing the network tests recently at work I am pretty sure we used this for a while and it worked great :)

    Excellent!

    I figured I'd have a look on CF for it but couldn't find it on the boards!:blink So... hopefully it will come in handy for anyone else who needs it!8)
