As we all know, ping is one of the most useful network debugging tools used for verifying IP-level connectivity.Normally when we want to ping multiple IP addresses, we open command prompts and start pinging to each IP.
If the ping command gets a response, then the connection is good, and you can concentrate on other problems.If you are getting RTO's [Request time out] there is some connectivity problem in the network
If we have to monitor connectivity of multiple IP addresses we need to open each cmd prompt and need to ping all IPs.There are lot of free software which allow you to ping multiple IPs at same time.But many of the companies will not allow admins to install and use third party softwares to do that.In such cases we can use batch files to ping multiple IPs at same time.You can PING as many IPs with a single click.
How to make a Batch file to ping multiple IP addresses- Open a notepad
START "Google Primary DNS" ping 22.214.171.124 -t
START "Google Secondary DNS" ping 126.96.36.199 -t
-Save it as Sysnet.cmd in your desktop .You can use as many IP address you want.All IP addresses are opened in seperate windows when you click on the Sysnet icon on your desktop
Instead of "Google Primary DNS" you can use any Title you want.
Instead of "188.8.131.52" and "184.108.40.206" you can use any IP address you want.
Instead of "Sysnet.cmd" you can use any Name.cmd you want.
