Need IP monitoring software

I have a machine that I need to monitor "uptime" with. It is on a private network. I am looking for software that I can use that will tell me when that machine has lost it's network connection.
I assume there will be a client on the said machine and another piece of software on my server that will tell me when it is no longer connected? I am a very small company and don't want to purchase any appliance or software that is hundreds of dollars. I would just like to monitor this machine. Something that would email me would be perfect.
Any ideas?

I looked at PTRG and OP Manager. Very confusing.
The Dude looks good however, does it contact me if a device is down?

PTRG and OPManager are complex but are very good. You can configure alerts sent to your email address. In another word, you are monitoring the System logs (Syslog). The monitoring device becomes your syslog server

What this programs do for you is helping to automatically configure and manage SNMP traps for your devices. You can actually do that yourself if you choose. The one most important to you is "linkup" and "linkdown"

 snmp-server enable traps snmp "linkup" or "linkdown"
(or snmp trap link-status interface depending on how old your IOS or device is)
see link below for more details
