Re: multiple pings ...

What's your goal?

You can set up a batch file to automate pinging of a subnet or a range of IP's within a subnet using only what window's provides built-in.

I've got a batch file that will ping an entire subnet, and write out to a text file success or failure with time stamps.

Hi

You could try VisualPulse

http://www.visualware.com/visualpulse/index.html

There's a demo version with some limitation ( number of simultanous nodes you can ping, ... )

Believe me :

Once you've tried it, you won't ever want to return to any dos ping ...

Re: multiple pings ...

Try WS_PingProPack from Ipswitch software (www.ipswitch.com). You can download a free 30 day demo, but you have to pay if you want to keep it. It gives you ping, traceroute, scan and lots of other tools in one package and is my particular favourite.

Re: multiple pings ...

Here's the batch file that I created to assist in re-claiming and checking IP's.

Edit as you need.


NOTE: you should find 2 files in the "pinsub.zip" archive: do-ping.bat and pingsub.bat. pingsub.bat calls do-ping.bat with parameters to make the batch file recursive for the sub-net pings.
