Computer Pinger is a small, yet useful software tool that was developed in order to help you verify if a certain IP address or NetBIOS name is currently in use.
This utility is portable, which means that you can bypass the installation process. This means the Windows registry will not be affected in any way, and no files will remain after its removal.
What’s more, Computer Pinger can be used on any PC you have access to, by simply dropping its program files to an external data device, such as a USB flash drive.
Easy to handle environment
The interface you come by is quite simple, as it only contains a menu bar, a few buttons and boxes, so as to help you perform all available actions. As a result, all user categories can work with it, without experiencing any kind of problem.
Verify status and save info to the PC
As mentioned above, it is possible to ping an IP address and NetBIOS name, at a specified period time (expressed in seconds). This software utility will display, almost automatically, the status and last checked time.
You can append sound effects, save the information received to the hard drive, in a TXT format. The output location cannot be specified by the user, which is considered to be a small setback. Nonetheless, you should know that the data will be saved in the same directory as the app.
All in all, Computer Pinger is a tiny, yet highly efficient piece of software. It has a good response time, a user-friendly environment and our tests have shown it is quite friendly to the system’s resources.
