PingHTTP

While testing modem, I needed to know when the internet connection drops, pinging an IP is not enough for my test so just created one. A simple tool that will let allow you to monitor web servers as well as grabbing banners of web servers. Included in the response is the version of web service such as apache or IIS and in some mis configured server, it will also provide the version number.

pingHTTP – is a simple HTTP ping utility for Windows OS.

However, the pingHTTP does not use ICMP but rather HTTP-REQUEST for monitoring Web Servers.

It includes timestamp and provides HTTP response codes as well as the type of responding WEB Server

and HTTP protocol version. This simple tool can also target specific web pages of web directories.
