I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, if not please feel free to tell me / move the thread.
I was reading around in the tutorials section and came across the usages for Netstat and Tracert. I've been messing around with them recently just because I want to learn more about my computer but I guess I don't understand the tracert feature. I can't seem to make it work. I go to the comman prompt (Start>Run>cmd. I'm not sure if this is the right command window) and I use netstat to get the foreign IP, but I can't seem to complete a tracert. It just says Unable to resolve target system name 188.8.131.52:1111 or whatever I put in. I also tried server name and a combination of the two but I guess I just don't understand. If anyone could point me in the direction of a good tutorial or a how to course that would be a great help.
