I have an application that displays a system tray icon that can reference a command or a script for troubleshooting steps for end users. Pinging the default gateway is a step I would like to add without customizing each application installation for each clients network. Any ideas?

Something simple:
@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
set IP=
FOR /F "tokens=2 delims=:" %%a IN ('ipconfig ^| findstr /IC:"Default Gateway"') DO (
  if NOT "%%a" == " " ping %%a -n 1
)
exit /b

Open in new window

Thank you. I need the results do display to the user. What would I add to the code? I also saved this as a .bat file, is that correct?

.bat or .cmd does not matter, though I prefer latter.
You probably just need the script to pause until a key is pressed to allow for viewing the result. Replace the exit /b with pause.
