Verifying the Connection

Now that you have gone to the trouble to connect to your intranet and the World Wide Web, it is a good idea to check and make sure it is still there! The best way to verify your connection is using Network Utility, which is accessible in /Applications/Utilities; see Figure 389.


Figure 389: Network Utility

 


The Network Utility will list your Interface Information, including packets sent and received, errors, IP address, and speed. To test connectivity, it is best to use Ping, a very handy little feature.

Figure 390: Ping Utility

 


If you have trouble with the first address, you try to ping, try another common one like yahoo.com or google.com, since it may be that particular IP’s server. If you cannot even get to the IP of your own server or service provider, you have trouble and that means its time to go check your settings.
