    Hi all, hate to be a nuisance. But im learning pathping and thought I would try it on my laptop but it doesn't work?
    It displays 0 No Resources.

    I typed: pathping 192.168.0.3 which is the ip of this computer.

    Then I tried pathping wikipedia.com
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PathPing)

    Same error displayed, maybe its me being stupid. But if im wrong please correct me.

    Regards!

    After a quick google it seems it's almost certainly a firewall or permissions problem.

    Oh right thanks! So im right in saying you can ping your own IP and a website address using the pathping command? In the book it says that its used for many routers to determine if one is "down" or incorrectly configured. So it is possible to do it if you only have on router?

    Regards!

    you don't even need a router. pathping 127.0.0.1 works perfectly well, although it doesn't tell you much.
    pathping is, in essence a combination of ping and tracert. ping tells you how long it takes, tracert tells you the route it took. pathping tells you the route and how long it takes for each leg of the journey. Useful for finding where a connection is being slowed down.
