What is the difference between these two messages?
1) Request Timed Out
2) Destination Host Unreachable
If a request times out, it means that your computer did not receive a response at all. It's the equivalent of calling someone and having the phone ring hundreds of times until you decide to give up. The Destination Host Unreachable message means that a router sent you back an error and is equivalent to a busy signal.
