Using ASP & SQL To Ping A Remote Server - Conclusion
(Page 6 of 6 )

Although this isn’t the quickest way to ping a server, it is definitely one of the most useful pieces of code I have ever created. Take for example, if you are at home and you run 6 web servers at work and one goes down. 2 are external, and 4 only have internal I.P. addresses. If you have this script setup under a password protected directory on one of the 2 external servers, then the only way to ping the 4 internal ones would be to use this script, because pinging the name of an internal server, such as “InternalServer4”, will resolve the name on the network, which is local to that web server. This can’t be done over the Internet using standard ping commands.

If you can find a way to improve on this script and use it to help you diagnose your web farm, etc, then feel free to do so. Drop me a line at mitchell@devarticles.com to let me know how it goes!
