How to: Add ping command to Mac desktop
Posted on 2012-03-31
Hello Experts, I need help with an Apple Mac (OS x 190.7.3). How to: put an icon on the desktop that will ping an address?
Background: This user sometimes has internet and VPN connectivity problems. On his old Windows machines I setup three desktop icons to ping connections to his router, ISP gateway, and remote site.
On the Mac I found the Network Utility and can run a ping. Now I want to make it simple for the user. I am a Mac rookie, so be easy on me!
