Click the 'Start' button in Windows and select the 'Run' option. Type in 'cmd' without the quotation marks to open the command line window.
Type in 'xe template-list name-label=[Name of Template] params=memory-static-max,recommendations' at the command line prompt. Press the 'Enter' key to determine the current maximum memory allowed for a template.
Note the value of the 'max' parameter in the screen output.
Type in 'xe template-param-set uuid=[UUID of Selected Template> memory-static-max=
Type in 'xe template-list name-label=[Name of Selected Template] params=memory-static-max,recommendations' at the command line prompt. Press the 'Enter' key to print the parameters of the modified XenServer template.
Access the command prompt on your computer. In Windows, click on the 'Start' button, select 'Run,' type in 'cmd' (without the quotes) and press 'OK.'
Type 'ping www.thedomainname.com' (without the quotes) in the command line. Replace 'thedomainname' to the domain name that you wish to convert into an IP.
Press 'Enter.' The IP of the domain name will be displayed on your screen.
Press 'Windows-X' to open the power user menu, and select 'Command Prompt' from the list. Pinging a server doesn't require administrator access, so you can ping Minecraft servers from any user account on your computer.
Use the ping command, followed by the server's address. An example would look like this:ping example.minecraftserver.comThe ping may take a second or two to complete, at which point the screen will display several reply results from the ping test.
Look for the average time; it should be the last piece of information displayed on the screen. The average represents the most likely ping time for your server latency, measured in milliseconds. While it may not be reflective of your exact latency at any given time while connected, it's a solid measure of what you can expect.

Click 'Start,' then 'Run' and type 'cmd' in the box that appears.
Press enter. A command window will appear.
Type 'ping,' a space and then the name of your SMTP Server. For example, type 'ping smtp.server.com' and press 'Enter.' The window will then try to contact the SMTP server by the IP address. It will say, 'Pinging x.x.x.x with 32 bytes of data.' The 'x.x.x.x' will be the SMTP server's IP address.

Look for the Web service on the local computer. If you have access to the machine that you wish to check for Web servers, look to see if a Web service is installed and running. If the computer is running Windows, click on the Control Panel and select Services. Windows runs Internet Information Services for its Web server. On a Unix/Linux box, make sure you are logged in as root and in a command window, type 'netstat -tap |grep LISTEN' and press 'Enter.' This will display all services running at the time, including HTTPD (HTTP daemon or service) used by Apache Web servers.
Type the IP address or DNS (Domain Name Service) name into a Web browser. If you know either identifying piece of information, you can type it into a Web browser. Note that the Web server needs to be running on the default port of 80 in order for this method to work. A port is how network services access a server. Typically, services have default ports on which they operate, with the default for Web services being port 80. Typing in the IP address of a server in a Web browser will work, but if the port has been manually changed to something other than port 80 (unless you know what port it is) this method won't work. To specify a port other than 80 via a Web browser, type the IP address and then follow it with :XXX with XXX being the port number. An example of this format is 220.127.116.11:2112 with the number following the colon being the port number.
Run a port scanner. As mentioned above, port 80 is the default port in which a Web server operates. If you don't want to go through ports 1 through 65,000 manually, you can run what's called a port scanner. This software will 'listen' to a server which you specify by IP address or DNS name and determine what services are running on what ports. This way, if someone has enabled a Web server on port 2112 or another port, the port scanner will detect it. This method is popular if you want to detect Web servers that you don't have physical access to.
