You can test the connection quality from your computer to our server by running the ping and traceroute/mtr commands on your computer. Although speed tests are important, they don’t show other important metrics like latency and packet loss.


Ping

Ping measures the response time between your computer and your server.

  • Windows

    1. Open the command prompt, also known as CMD.exe.
    2. Type: ping s5.yamsftp.net
  • Mac and Linux

    1. Open the terminal application.
    2. Type: ping s5.yamsftp.net

Traceroute

Traceroute shows the routers that your data traverses to our servers.
