Test TCP/IP configuration using PING command

  BBW 11:28 25 Nov 07

I need to test the ping function on my line. I can run the 'ipconfig' command but the DOS screen comes up and disappears immediately. How can I hold it on the screen for me to read the results. It used to do it!
Many thanks for any help.
