I love Ping Plotter. Best $15 I have ever spend on a program that I use every 5 minutes during preforming my work duries. I would like to request that you invest some time on your next version and add a feature that would allow me to ping cable modem's IP. During my everyday duties I use a different tool to ping cable modem's IP but since that server in not inside the network, is not reliable. The network that I work on the modem uses ip and I would like to use your program to check ping status on my cable modems. Can you provide me some feedback if this is possible or maybe you might have to created a second version just to ping cable modems. <img src="/forums/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />

Thanks for the encouragement and suggestion.

What program are you currently using to ping your cable modem? What ISP do you use, and what cable modem do you use? I suspect that the "ping" you're program does is a different type - not using standard ICMP echo to do this.

Since you state "but since that server in not inside the network, is not reliable", I'm suspicious as to the ability to even access this information from your computer at all.

You should be able to ping with Ping Plotter, although I don't (and never have had) have a device that would respond to that IP, so I'm not sure.

Let me know more details about your situation / hardware / software and I'll see if we have anything that can help with this.

- Pete
