Test if your remote computer is online or your website server is up and running using Network Ping. Windows does not provide a graphical utility to ping hosts, it only has a command line tool. This software can ping remote computers just like ping.exe that comes with your operating system. It has multiple parameters that you can set right from the program, visual output, export and print out features. Use a better ping instead of command line! Fully supports IPv4 and IPv6.

Network Ping Help
Type in a remote computers IP address or domain name in the input box provided to ping. Click on the toolbar button "Ping". Wait several seconds and view visual ping output in the list below.
Below is a screenshot of a typical output screen. First column displays the ping request number, second column shows the IP address that was pinged, followed by the host name and the third one displays the reply timeout in milliseconds.
|You may set and save for future use several parameters before pinging a host. "Resolve Addresses to Hostnames" options will show a readable host name following the IP address in the middle column. Flag not to fragment IP sets a packet flag so that packets are not reassembled when fragmented. "Use raw sockets" flag executes ping using raw sockets rather than API functions. Number requests to send simply sets the number how many times you would like to send a ping request to a network host. IPv6 option uses IP version 6 protocol for ICMP requests.|
sets a time limit how long to wait for a response from the
server before deciding that the host is offline. 5000
milliseconds is a good enough value, do not set it to small
<1000 since in this case the software may give a false
report that the host is offline.
Data buffer size sets the value on how much data is to send when pinging a computer.
Time to live (TTL) is the time to live of the ICMP packets to be sent. This number is the maximum number of routers through which this packet should travel, please do not set this number low. If this number is set too small, the packets may never reach the destination computer.
TOS is an IP type of service.
In addition to the graphical output you may print out the results of ping requests or export ping results as a plain ASCII text file.
