Local Server downtime reporting tool

We have a T-link with remote station. And we are experiencing a lot of downtime. Is there a  script or free tool which monitors uptime and reports us when there is a downtime which can later be shared with the ISP.

station ip adress is 192.168.x.x and does not have to go through the internet for any ping test for example.

    A simple free way to do this would be to run "ping ipaddress -t > pinglog.txt" and then you can review the log to see when ping fails.

    Hi zelron22.

    I have been randomly doing ping tests. but i need something like this -

    1) Something that would ping the station every x mins.
    2) An Email alert if there is a timeout and a daily report which shows a summary of the ping tests for the day.

    do you know of any tool ?
