Ping other computers on your network with this multifunctional tool
The program can only be run with the command line console, so if you are not familiar with it, it may take some time to learn how it works.
When running the program, it displays an example of the command syntax and the available options to use. You simply have to type the given command and input your own data.
Fping allows you to verify multiple domain names or IP addresses with a single command. You can even set it to read the host list from a file. Having all standard ping features, this utility also offers you some features that are not available using the standard ping utility.
For example, you can adjust the time between two pings and the timeout to wait for each response, as well as the number of pings to send to each host. Furthermore, there is another distinct command for setting the amount of data sent in packets, the record route or the number of hops.
The program also enables you to ping an IP range, as well as show domain names when using IP addresses. If you want to test your network status while doing something else, you can set the application to notify you on every successful or unsuccessful ping.
One other extra feature is the possibility to ping using raw sockets or ICMP dll. Moreover, you have the possibility to choose the data the program uses for pinging.
The result can be recorded in a log text file, which you can use later to analyze the replies and their frequency.
Fping is a small network diagnostic utility that offers you multiple options for testing whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network.
