windows 7 tools: ping with sound notificaton when host reachable or unreachable

Hello,

i am searching for a tool to ping some hosts and recieve a sound when the host is reachable (for example like the submarine ping) . It would be nice if i recieve another other sound (something strange like ARRRG). when the host is not reachble. It must be freeware and run under windows 7, XP. It would be the best if this tool would run with ubuntu too, but is not a must have.

Why: sometimes i connect my notebook to a porr on a router to test something and this devices are not in my room. if the ping works and plays a sound i could here this without running there. :-). So lets go to find some . i think everyone could use this. 500 Points to earn.

Check this utility out...

You can set up the interval to use between pings and there is an option to give a feedback sound on failed pings. The sound it uses is the "Asterik" in the control panel --> sounds... so you could change that sound to any wav you wanted.

Hello,

i've tryed this tool you described. there is an option to "beep" when a ping fails. but this program did not work correctlly. I set up the pinglist, and started, nothing happens.

anyone else?

What did you put in the ping list? I use this all the time and it works great for me (and my co-workers).

Hello,

it works but not like excepted. i need to put name AND IP into the list, i just want to ping ip adresses without names. And, i cannot set a sound for the success / unsuccess, just a "Beep", which is not enough :-(

using v1.25.

just a beep, not a "sound" like sonar-ping or something. When i work in operation center it is not loud enough when the clima is running.

anyone else?

Not to harp on this, but if you uncheck the "Use IP-Host description format" checkbox, you only have to enter the IP addy OR the host name (not both).

Also, like I mentioned earlier, if you change the default "Asterik" sound in the control panel, it'll make any noise you want it to make... If you don't hear the noise, you know it is successful.

The 'beep' that is being called is the 'Asteik' sound located in the Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices --> Sounds tab. You can change the output...

Were you able to find and change the Asterik sound to something you wanted?
