Ping the #twatch

Posted on Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 in #twatch by Ian


The #twatch has a simple ICMP (ping) server that shows if the #twatch is alive and kicking on your network, and how long it takes to respond.

First, get the #twatch IP address from the LCD screen or the announcement packet.

Next, start a ping client and ping the #twatch IP address. Windows has a built-in ping client that’s available from the command prompt (Start->run. Type ‘cmd’, press enter. Type ‘ping’, followed by the IP address).

The ping results show basic statistics like how many pings were successful, and how long the #twatch took to reply.
