Ping machines from list and update .txt file
Posted on 2009-07-07
I need some help getting started with this, I have only just downloaded VB E 2008 and realised I cant update my old VB6 apps with it. So I need to start form scratch with this one.
I need a simple application to ping a list of machines listed in a .txt file, then update the .txt to file to state if ping was succesful or not.
I have got about 500 machines on a network at work and I want to see how many are left on through the night by running this, if they are on I will send a shutdown commmand. Before you ask they are not on a domain so I cant do this via a GP.
As always thanks for your help guys.
