  • Ping Script Help


    I am looking for help in creating a script that will ping a series of IP addresses or host names and then have it output a list of unreachable hosts.

    I am new to scripting and am just looking for a easier way to perform this task other than manually pinging and noting the hosts that I am unable to reach.

    ping xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

    if host unreachable

    then >> word doc

    do you want to ping a whole subnet, for example ?

    there's plenty of scripts that do gthat for powershell, even for cmd scripting.

    it wouldn't be too difficult to run it with import-csv to pick the hostnames from a csv file, then output to a csv file.

      Does it have to be in a command prompt?

      I have a HTA script that run and will try and ping specific hosts then pops up with a screen telling what is available and what is not.

      I can't remember where I got it.

        Another way would be to use angry ip scanner and export the dead hosts to txt, csv or xml.

        I do tend to think 'outside the box' so others may not always share the same views.
