Chapter 16. Internet Diagnosis Tools > Windows TCP/IP Utilities

Windows TCP/IP Utilities

Windows 2000 comes with a set of command-line programs you can use to trace TCP/IP problems. Most of these programs are the Windows versions of standard utilities supplied with UNIX, the operating system on which virtually all TCP/IP software was originally developed. (Despite the claims of their respective PR agents, neither Microsoft nor Al Gore invented the Internet.)

Because most of these diagnostic tools are command-line utilities, you run them from the command prompt (Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt). Most of them are actually sophisticated 32-bit Windows programs on the inside—they just don't have that nice graphical user interface.
