or if you have resource kit, you can use sleep (sleep 60)

or for a vbscript method:
Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
 
Sub pingit()
wscript.sleep 60000
objShell.Run "ping somehost.somewhere.com"
pingit
End Sub

Following should do it (save it as a batch file)

:startagain
PING -n 1 machineName >>ping.log
TYPE NUL | CHOICE.COM /N /CY /TY,60 >NUL
goto startagain

i tried this solution which i found from other site.

@echo off
cls
:start
echo ping every 40 seconds
ping -n 2 X.X.37.122
sleep 40
goto start

it does the job for me.

this is the workaround for my previous question which i raised "cisco vpn client disconnects every 2 minutes". I'm looking for a permanent solution for vpn client disconnections.

I disagree - your posted 'solution' is basically a restatement of what I'd posted, in three different formats...
Your first response was a reply to an expert that posted after me - never acknowledging my attempts to help you, but then stating you'd resolved it with the same method described in my post...

Based upon my suggestion of combining my first post with the sleep utility, coupled with the author's post that this is the solution they used, I say accept http:#24849156
