I typed ping ask-leo.com in the Run "command line". (I'm using Windows XP)

It flashes up various results as expected and then the window promptly vanishes.

How do I make the window stick around so that I can read it?

PS I tried ping ask-leo.com | more. It didn't work.

Thanks

Open up a command prompt window by typing "cmd" without quotes in the run window and then type your ping statement in the window that opens.

Thanks!

Incidentally when I pinging ask-leo.com I got min 399mS, max 419mS.

Good for you Billy! I get 191. Why, though? What does Leo know?

No problem.

I just pinged at got around the 200 mark. Why are you trying to ping this particular site though with reference to latency?
