Re: Best way to test latency?

I tired typed 'su' and it returned as 'unkown command."

Because su is not a Crosh command.

No, not a Crosh command. Here's a list of commands for Crosh

EDIT: while many Linux commands work,  including sudo, it doesn't work with tracepath.  And there's no tracert or traceroute command for Crosh that I know of.  It's just tracepath (EDIT 2: poor, wonky, maligned, possibly buggy, tracepath).

Re: Best way to test latency?

What about:

1. Exiting the Crosh shell first using 'exit',

2. Switching to a bash shell using 'shell',

3. Then doing 'sudo traceroute'. -> might want to try just 'traceroute' first.

He should definitely try that. I'll test all this when I'm back at the firm and can get to the Chromebook. (Edit: though I thougth a bash shell is for running scripts....dunno, never used this on the Chromebook)

Nice page... bookmarked.

Incidentally, look at the ftp definition of 'hash'... crafty little buggers.

Re: Best way to test latency?

An exit command in crosh literally closes it The browser window disappears, haha. I found guidance on the net that a shell command in crosh will take you to the root linux shell, so I tried that, but it returned 'unknown command.' I dunno,I give up for now. I will eventualy have a chance to bring a windows laptop to this location. I will have the chromebook at a place with cable internet service later next week, and I'll try pinging and tracepathing there, just to see what happens.
