Or, «Who are they?», «Where are they at?», and «How do you connect to them?» — When it comes to investigating a certain network address, youll want to find out everything about that host.
With Konst Pinger — a multi-purpose network utility — you will be able to get all that and even more. The application can ping, trace-route hosts and retrieve the hosts? Whois data. But since the program was primarily meant for pinging, its ping functionality has been developed most thoroughly.
In Konst Pinger, a host can be pinged manually, with results shown on the screen as text, just as if youd be doing that do from the command prompt window. Or, Pinger could do that automatically, while running in the background or minimized to the system tray. Ping delay and packet size parameters can be varied within any range.
The application automatically gathers ping results and statistics in a log file and passes it on to a built-in data parser, which runs a through analysis and builds ping diagrams, which you can customize to your taste. Further on, you can export the charts to bitmap image files and paste them to other documents. Statistics summary sent to your online pager or mobile phone will let you stay informed of a host?s availability at all times.
The software will run even under a relatively «old» Windows 95 OS. And what makes it really attractive is its price — Konst Pinger is available absolutely free-of-charge.
