Test IP connectivity between two DB hosts from a workstation

Is there a easy way to test IP connectivity between two Windows SQL Server 2012 DB hosts from my Windows 7 workstation? I know the host names and IP addresses of both hosts and I can ping both hosts from my workstation OK, but I want to check that there is connectivity at the IP level between the hosts. Thanks for any help you can give.

Install this on your Windows 7 station;
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx

After installation, open up a command prompt and type
psexec \\dbservername cmd
(Installation is copying the psexec file to your executable folder.)

This will connect you to the command prompt on the remote server.
From here you can do any command line tasks, such as ping.

Yes that looks exactly like what I need. It worked as expected and I was able to run paping to determine if a specific port was open. Heaps of thanks on you!
