To do so, you can ping the "MapleStory" server to test its responsiveness.

Select the "Start" button with your mouse on your computer desktop to open your Start Menu.

Select the "Programs" option in the start menu, then select the "Command Prompt" option to open your command prompt.

Type the following command into the prompt: "ping maplestory.nexon.net"

Press the "Enter" key to ping the MapleStory server.
