Re: [vox-tech] Why I'll Never Be a Network Admin Guy

    What Pete describes is how I understand TTL to mean also.  I see that
pinging that site from my location in Redding, CA shows 11 hops.  If I were
in China or Germany, there is a chance that site would be unavailable to me
because as the ping shows, TTL is set to 53:
PING jenipurr.com ( from : 56(84) bytes of
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=53 time=106.1 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=53 time=105.0 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=53 time=108.1 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=53 time=105.5 ms
