Bing is a feather-light and portable software application that can ping an IP address to find out the connection strength between the remote and local host. It comes packed with several useful options and configuration parameters.
No setup necessary
Installation is not required, which makes Bing portable. It means that you can save the executable file in a custom location on the hard disk and just click it to run, as well as copy it to a USB flash drive to be able to directly launch it on any machine effortlessly and without previously installing anything.
What's more, the program does not alter Windows registry settings or create extra files on the hard drive without your permission, thus leaving no traces behind after its removal.
Outdated interface with straightforward options
The GUI is made from a standard window with a simple structure, where you can immediately dive into the configuration process. So, you can specify the ping timeout, IP address, repeat time, host and IP, as well as click a button to send the ping command.
It is possible to create a list with multiple IP addresses to be able to quickly ping them, save, clear and view the text, as well as set Bing to automatically save it. The results list shows the data packet size, delay time, date and time, along with website name for each entry.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool is very light when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it does not put a strain on computer performance. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash. All in all, Bing gets the job done and can be used by anyone with ease.
