    How to check internet bandwidth


    1) Is there a command to check my internet bandwidth through the terminal? or through GUI?

    2) I'm connected to a LAN with 4 other pc. Is there a command I can type in the terminal to know the other 4 pc's IP address....? I'm using FC5

    Your ISP should have some online utility that lets you check usage etc. There are some utilities such as iptraf that might tell you something. Not really my area

    Is there a Domain name resolution in place on the lan (DNS, Hosts files)? If so you can ping by hostname and that will display the IP of those other machines. You could log on to each of them locally and do an ifconfig command
    I am on a journey to mastering Linux and I got a bloody long way to go!!!
