Which specific problem to troubleshoot?

My favorite and always use for many years in order.

1. Traceroute and packet drops

2. Reverse traceroute, BGP looking glass, etc..

3. DNS


5. Subnetting, password cracking,

6. Hexadecimal calculator

7. Sniffing

Most user think that if they cannot access a remote host, the problem is network. Majority of this perception is wrong. In most cases, the cause is trojan or virus. The following will help you probe if its a network problem or the user PC is infected with trojan or virus before rebooting your core switch.

1. Online AntiVirus scanner

2. Spybot Search&Destroy
