Running an MTR on Windows

2. Open the folder, open the architecture of your OS (usually x64), and run the .exe file



3.Select the "Run" option



4. Within the "Host" box, enter the IP address of the server or host you are trying to ping.

For example, you would want to enter your server's IP. Do not include a server port



5. Press "Start"


6. We recommend letting this run for about 2 minutes. After the few minutes, you can press "Copy Text to Clipboard" or attach a screenshot to your ticket.
