I just started an IT consulting business and now have a few clients that have networks that I support. I am looking for a software solution that will enable me to be notified when their networks/server goes down. Something very basic, that just pings their IP Address/port. I was using Spiceworks, but it didn't have (or I couldn't figure out) that basic functionality across the open internet.

Thanks in advance.

Hi;
You can use snmp monitoring. May be you can interest SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset. It is a great program for that.
