in order to measure aprroximately the rouitng distance (to see if a server is close to my country or too far away) I usually use ping command.
I'm in Italy,
- when I ping Italian servers I get 36ms
- when I ping US EAST servers I get an average of 120ms
- when I ping US WEST servers I get an average of 200ms
Unfortunately some web hosters turn off the ping reply on their servers, so my question is how do I detect the routing distance, is there another easy to use command in Windows to accomplish the same task?
