Experts,

I am stuck on how to figure out how to Ping yahoo.com 3 separate times and google.com 3 separate times waiting 1 minute between pings.   I looked at the supported data for my previous question cant seem to get it to work.  

My thoughts:

Not sure how what the syntax would be for 2 websites but for one I was thinking
ping -w 60000 -n 3 www.google.com

After researching I realized that -w is only to be used for a wait before a timeout.  Any ideas?  I am looking to have it wait 1 minute between a total of 6 pings to yahoo and google.

So for the 1 - 4 steps am I hitting enter?  Wouldn't that just run it and never get to step 4?

Usually I use "ping -n 60 localhost" to wait 1 minute. You can put that between your other pings to make a one-minute delay. Hope this helps. Good luck!

ping -n 60 is 60 counts, not 60 seconds. (it could be close, but you've got more than 3 pings!)

still need a batch file.

and if you response time is slower, then it will be longer than 60 seconds.

Okay so I did what you said and it only waits 60 seconds then ends..  It should wait 60 seconds for 6 times.  Am I reading this wrong?

Right, -n 60 is the number of icmp packages you send, with a one minute delay.
Because you ping localhost or even your network IP, the response time won't an issue.
Moreover, there's an advantage pinging your network IP, because you can also discover at the same time if you are having issues with your network card, something that sleep won't tell you because it's only a cpu check.

Okay, that makes sense..  I ran it your way and it pinged 60 times. It is  great way for what you are talking about though.

you could use a pause in the batch file?
