Hi,

Using windows:
Start > Run... > cmd (enter)
and then follow steps bellow:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>tracert www.planet.nl

Tracing route to netapp.planettechnologies.nl [213.75.12.14]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

   1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  SpeedTouch.lan [10.0.0.138]
   2    21 ms     6 ms     5 ms  195.190.250.28

What it shows is route users go through to reach your server. The higher 
number, the slower connection is. The longer 'distance' they travel - 
more risk for bottle-necks. As you can see on the *nix traceroute I did, 
first 2 network components are on the same network as mine server and 
therefore really fast (under 0,5 ms). When I get 'out' of the network, 
things slow down a bit... Basicly, everything within 20-25 ms is 
reasonably good. Any higher then that and download 'jams' :(

Cheers,
Aleks
