    I've been having some unusual lag when logging in and I thought to check my Ping.
    I have forgotten how to do this.

    Use to be able to download UO Trace Route from here: ftp://ftp.owo.com/pub/uo/uotrace/uotrace.exe/ but it's apparently been taken off :sad4:.
    Using UO server names:
    Login.owo.com (login server)
    Compassion.owo.com (patch server)
    All others are the name of the server with the .owo.com extension (ex. Lakesuperior.owo.com).

    Under your DOS command type Ping (Space) Lakesuperior.owo.com (or what shard) hit enter. This will show your ping to that server. Ideally the UO Trace program shows all hops to your server which is better in case only a specific hop is having a problem.

    thats the command i put in, but I got this

    'ping' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file "

    Its ok I guess, not a game stopper, just irritating that it doesnt work now for some reason.
    Thanks anyways guys.
