    Ping launcher

    I've just finished creating a little utility for myself to launch a Ping via a key-combo instead of having to launch a command prompt etc...

    When its running, simply press Alt+Period/Full stop and you will be prompted for the IP/hostname to ping.

    Its available from lzPingLaunch | Localzuk

    Hope its helpful to someone other than me.

  2. Thanks to localzuk from:

    will check it out later on - although I use a mac so already have the network util which includes ping, nslookup, finger, port scan etc etc all in one place

    Why not just a HTA that had either a text field that had validation done on it or an input box with similar validation and then after clicking on a button or pressing enter it pings with an output window and assign it to one of the F keys that you don't use along the top ie F6 instead of multiple buttons.

    FYI - not trying to be negative just some feedback but take into consideration I have not used or launched your util yet so some points might be moot lol

    Because I prefer c#, and intend to grow the app to include other functions. Also regarding which key is pressed, the problem is that many different apps use the different F keys. But obviously, as I make changes I will consider different options (such as allowing the user to alter the key combo) etc...

    I've now adapted the program to include the following tools:

    • Ping
    • NSLookup
    • Trace Route
    • VNC
    • RDP


    The application now also checks for updates. To go straight to the updated files, simply double click on the new version available shown in the tool window.

    Available here

    For anyone who has downloaded the non-MSI version and found it didn't work, I have uploaded a replacement version which fixes this issue.
