You’ve been working on a web server located off-site, but today you’ve arrived at the office and you’re unable to access the device from your workstation. What command line utilities can display the network path that’s used when you attempt to reach the remote server? Pick the two best answers.

A) PING

B) TRACERT

C) PATHPING

D) NETSTAT

E) The AAA Road Atlas


The answers: B) TRACERT and C) PATHPING

The traceroute and pathping utilities can help you understand the path you take between point A and point B. If you’re not able to access a remote location, these two utilities can give you more information about how far you’re able to go before the path ends.
