Tracing to multiple destinations

Question

I would like to use PingPlotter Standard to monitor more than one destination. Is that possible?

Solution

If you're running version 4, any one instance of PingPlotter Standard can only trace to a single destination. If you're running version 5, it can trace to a total of 2 targets.

To monitor multiple IP addresses, you can run multiple instances of PingPlotter Standard, or use the Pro version. If you run multiple instances of the Standard edition, each taskbar icon and tray icon will list the destination so you know which one to open if you have a bunch running.

If you only want to monitor the final destination, you might want to have a look at our MultiPing product which allows you to ping multiple targets (not traceroute, just ping) and has some similarities to PingPlotter.
