This article describes a Ping control.


Add a Ping control to your form and set the following properties:

  1. The IP-address to ping.
  2. The terminal type (Server, Router, Desktop, ….).
  3. The e-mail address of the person who will be notified when the remote host does not respond.
  4. The short description of the remote host.
  5. The ping interval.
  6. Write a log file - Yes or No. The log file can be viewed and printed.

Controls can be added to build a visual representation of your network.

When a remote host does not respond, the image will change, a warning message will be displayed and a log will be generated with the date and time. The e-mail recipient will also be notified.
