||Ping Monitor (by JC Software)
|The program allows the user to create a list of IP addresses then periodically ping each computer at a user specified time interval. If the host computer fails to reply to a ping request, the program can
trigger different alert messages and alarms; including e-mail, run third-party programs, or communicate serially or over the network to a remote computer. It can also perform a full trace route when a ping request fails, perform a WhoIs look up of the IP Address to
identify the network company, and has the option to play a Wav sound file when a ping request passes or fails. ZDNet Editor's Pick
