Have you ever seen those IP scanner programs where it goes through a range of IP addresses and pings each on on a separate thread and then returns the result?
I am making my OWN version of that. I have got everything done so far except that the pinging is VERY slow. In the commercial version of these programs, you can ask it to use 50 threads (just an example number) for pinging an IP on each. Of course, using 50 threads compared to 1 is MUCH faster.
But how do I spawn 50 different threads and ping a different IP address on each. I would also like the user to be able to input how many threads he wants the program to use.
I am using the Visual Studio code snippet ping code (My.Computer.Network.Ping(ip)) to ping the IPs.
THIS DOES NOT WORK: (Just letting you know.)
"for i = 1 to 50
dim s as new system.threading.thread(AddressOf pinger)
