Hey guys,

Hope this is in the correct category.

What I want:

I want to run the command "ping 8.8.8.8 -t" and when I hit Ctrl-C I want it to write the data to a .txt file. ( So if I let it run for let's say 10 minutes, I want all that ping data in those 10 minutes copied to a .txt file when I quit the command ).

I've tried the following command:

Code:
ping 8.8.8.8 -t > pinginfo.txt
However it just goes to the next line in the command prompt and does nothing.

Can anyone help perhaps?

How do you know it does nothing? It doesn't give you any feedback, go look at the location where you specified it should write the file to

Did you check the file content, your method worked for me.
Perhaps run cmd as Administrator

I use fping (https://fping.org/) . w 1000 = 1 second. Change it to any number of seconds between pings. You can leave out the initial pinging of the router (fping 192.168.10.1). I just do that to ensure the pc is connected to the lan.
Code:
@echo off
Title FPing DNS 8.8.8.8 *** Ctrl+break for Stats ***  Ctrl+C to quit
echo **************************
echo **      Ping Google     **
echo **************************
echo ** Press Ctrl+C to quit **
echo ** Press Ctrl-Break to  **
echo **  get statistics      **
echo **************************
echo ** Ping router to check **
echo ** LAN connection is ok **
echo **************************

fping 192.168.10.1
fping 8.8.8.8 -L c:\FPing\Logs\Pinglog_1_%date:~6,4%%date:~3,2%%date:~0,2%-%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%%time:~6,2%.txt -D -T -t 1000 -w 10000 -c -r -j
