Net Detective® will help assist you when something is not working on the system. In many cases it will give you a hint. For example, let's say you ping from router A to router C but serial 0/0 on router B is shut down, Net Detective will tell you that. Or, you set up a static route on A but put in the wrong IP address on router C, serial 0/0. When your ping does not succeed, Net Detective® will assist you and tell you that you have set up a static route but your IP address (for C serial 0/0) is not found in the list.
