Pop Quiz: Command-line network troubleshooting tools

Do you know the difference between ping and traceroute? Take this short quiz and test your knowledge of command-line networking utilities.

From ping to traceroute, command-line network troubleshooting tools, can be an admin's best friend. But, how much do you really know about the different tools? Take this short quiz and test your knowledge. Note: Unfortunately, our poll tool, which I use to create each pop quiz, doesn't let me indicate a correct answer after each question. To keep from giving away the answers before everyone has a chance to test his/her knowledge, and ruining all the fun, I've published the answers on the second page of this blog post. I encourage everyone to answer all the questions before looking at the second page.
