I need a script that runs on XP that pings a host every minute. If the ping fails, it tries again in a few seconds. If it fails again after three or four tries, the script sends an email to me. I will need to run multiple instances of the script all at once, each with a different IP and different text to email.
IP address to ping
Time between pings
Delay before retry
number of retries before alert is sent
The following MAY use BLAT....
SMTP host (and possibly login information)
TO: email address
FROM: email address
text to send
BONIUS: a file is attached to the email. the complete file name will be unknown, but will always be in the same folder, wil begin with "CAMWIZ", and will be the newest of all the files in that folder
whatever else you can think of that would be helpful
