I am back!

Specifically designed for my company, it remains portable and generic. Why? With a text file for input, this program can be yours!

NTMON.EXE is just 75KB, no add-ons needed. It is intended as a shell of PING results up to 500 URLs/IPs in a scrollable listbox with ONLINE/OFFLINE tag next to all items.

Well. You might come up with the text file (NTMON.TXT) in this 2-line format:

DESCRIPTION
URL/IP
DESCRIPTION
URL/IP
...
...
...
(up to 500 pairs)

Then, just start the program, wait for the dialog to appear while it is pinging the list in the background (or foreground, depending on your OS).

It is simply useful to keep track a list of regular URLs/IPs (to ping) and show it in a scrollable+searchable+sorted listbox with ONLINE/OFFLINE results.

Now, things to consider.

It has been tested on Windows XP SP3, and Windows 7 32-bit (various editions).

Under your Windows, besides a NTMON.TXT for input, NTMON.EXE requires a third-party executable from Microsoft to act as the engine.
Please copy from your Windows' SYSTEM32 folder, the PING.EXE, to the same folder as NTMON.EXE.

The attached NTMON.ZIP already included the Windows 7 32-bit version of PING.EXE. Using incorrect version of PING.EXE may resulting in incorrect ONLINE/OFFLINE status.
When ONLINE and when OFFLINE? OFFLINE is shown either when PING.EXE is not in the application path, URL/IP naming convention is incorrect, or no Internet access on both ends.
When ONLINE then is very clear. NTMON.EXE ping twice to confirm at least a reply is received.

If you need this program, please feel free to use it. Unlike prior MS-DOS programs, I haven't include the TP7 source in the compressed package.

Thanks!

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Please set the properties of this MS-DOS program to run in 80x50 text mode.

Attached File  NTMON.zip   43.36KB   17 downloads

Dos does not mean "command line", nor CLI, it means DOS.
XP and 7, last time I checked, were part of the NT family of OS and not of the 9x/Me one (DOS based).

So, nice tool :), but maybe posted in the "wrong" place :unsure:

My mind had been dizzy as the Windows family keeps emerging (or I am the one to blame for not catching up the technology :wacko: )

Truly, but sadly, I have blurred the line between CMD.EXE (or COMMAND.EXE) and the real MS-DOS. Thank you for your correction, really! :yes:

I can't find better place to share this program. While my program fits the thread, it was the descriptions that misled many.
I even doubt that there is a PING.EXE provided by earlier version of Windows, or MS-DOS itself.

Glad that you like the program. (You've actually downloaded and tried it, haven't you?)

Sure I did :), but by "nice", I meant "nice" ;), not that I personally liked it :w00t:

I mean, no offence intended, but to do similar things in NT based systems I have always used a few lines in one of my half@§§ed batches, example:
@ECHO OFF
CLS
SET to_ping=8.8.8.8
SET Today=%Date%
SET Today=%Today:/=_%
:loop
FOR /F "tokens=5 delims==, " %%A IN ('ping -n 1 %to_ping% ^|FIND "Pacchetti"') DO (
ECHO.
IF %%A.==0. (
ECHO %Date%-%time% NO_PING %to_ping%
REM Optional log
REM ECHO %Date%-%time% NO_PING %to_ping%>>%Today%.log
)
::Poorman's WAIT
::Very roughly 60 second intervals
::it would be much beeter to use AT, SCHTASKS or any of the n third party "WAIT" tools
FOR /L %%B in (0,1,4100) DO PING -n 1 127.0.1.1>nul
GOTO :loop

JFYI, Win9x/Me have the PING command allright :thumbup :

What I can say. The difference between yours (a batch scripts) and mine (a ping shell) is the latter is more **presentable**.
It was not difficult to create the menu and dialog UI as I managed to accomplish in one working day in office.

However, in most cases, a batch script is more than enough.

Thank you very much for your plenty of resources.
I have tried the Windows 95 (or WFW 3.2?)'s PING.EXE but was not working under my Windows 7 32-bit.
Also have had a look at MS Client.

To make this clear, the NTMON.EXE was intended to run in command-line subject to the availability of PING.EXE in your Windows (from Win95 up to Win7, although the program wasn't tested in earlier versions of the OS), even though the program itself was entirely a pure MS-DOS program (written using Turbo Pascal 7.0 dated 1992).

In Win9x, the PING window will not run hidden; therefore, a series of calls to PING.EXE will result in a very disturbing flashing of a DOS window. For this reason, two years ago I have written a utility that can ping only one IP or address repeatedly and notify through message box (and speech, if enabled) when the ping failed. It uses IcmpCreateFile(), IcmpSendEcho(), IcmpCloseHandle() plus WSAStartup(), WSACleanup() and a couple other functions, which makes PING.EXE unnecessary. However, the utility only runs under Windows (definitely 9x/XP, not sure about Vista/7/8). If I remembered what I did back then, I could probably modify it to loop through a list of IPs/addresses, but I'm not sure what the usefulness of such tool would be and neither do I feel like coding right now. If anyone thinks it'd be needed as is, say so and I'll try attaching it here.

From the TRIUS forums:

TRIUS no longer supports or answers questions regarding this program, but other users visiting these forums might.

LCalc 1.0 for DOS
http://www5.zippysha...80443/file.html

A tiny calculator I made for DOS.

It can handle addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, decimals included. But no long expressions, or algebraic problems :-)

*if anyone has any ideas for a small DOS tool you'd like, let me know, I might be able to figure something out. Or not :-) No promises.

**One project I might start is an Archive Shell for viewing zip files in DOS. I would like something really simple, but neat looking, for checking the contents of zip files.

DUtils 1.0 - Command line tool, can produce a beep, wait for keypress, display date and time, or combinations of those.

http://www10.zippysh...96948/file.html

Another small tool I made... it's similar to Fliermate's tools listed on page 2, except this is one program instead of several. Maybe useful for batch files or whatnot.

Here's an intersting DOS program called FileView Pro 1.0

http://www.qbasicnew...av/projects.php

FileView Pro - my poor attempt at using QB to make a useful file viewer for many type files. It's supposed to work like QuickView Pro, if you know that DOS program. FV Views and edits any size binary file up to 2 gigabytes, views text files, views BMP/GIF/PCX/JPG files, plays FLI/FLC animations, plays WAV/SND/CMF/MID sound files. Deletes/Copies files. View/edit any file in binary mode. Source code is not included.

The interface/GUI is quite good :-) I'm impressed actually. At the least, a very nice text viewer and shell for DOS, with cool additional features too.

P.S. Don't bother downloading his Hex editor, it didn't even run at all.

He also wrote a webserver called SmallWeb, for Windows 9x, which is only 13kb in size.

Would this be considered a member project? LOL. Well, here's mine.

LTools
http://www.geocities...ls14/myprog.htm

Latest version of my DOS command line utility.

Features: clock (in standard time and military), calculator, beep emitter, date/time display, wait for keypress, and a password login screen for when the computer is booted, if you choose. Doesn't change any system files. Password feature is most effective if you manually edit your autoexec.bat to make it run on startup. Or else you can simply turn it on while away from keyboard. Password is changeable by editing a text file.
