What is Pingguin?
Pingguin is a troubleshooting network tool, it permits to ping one or multiple computer or device responding to ping and analyse the result.
Its goal is to provide a friendlier PING command than the console application offered by the operating system (OS). Mainly, a graphic user interface (GUI). It does not replace the PING console application of the OS but add some functionality it lacks. Such as saving the result to disk, printing the result, automatic PING with various parameter of a list of computer or host (e.g. Server, any devices accepting a ping request, PC in workgroup and domain).
In fact PINGGUIN is more than a simple software. Of course it does what you expect of the ping console application but more too. If your everyday is maintaining network, no doubt you wished you could just load a list of host to ping with various parameter as they are all the time the same or with little variation. Sometime, you’d wish you could also read a simple report in a more friendly way of dozen of pinged host. Wouldn’t be a time saver if only the console application could do that? If this is you, PINGGUIN will help you lots. It just does that with perfection. At home your internet television, various PC, the game console, the home networks goes rogue… well ping them all and check what is going on. Did I mention it is faster than the equivalent console application offered by the OS? Indeed it is.
From pinging local network address to distant server for troubleshooting a network, to know the IP address of a domain or other reason of yours, PINGGUIN is there to help. The result is a text file you can manipulate the way you like. As it is a portable software and does not need administrative right to run in single or multiple instance, PINGGUIN could be a great addition to any network tool collection. Best of all it is free to use even in commercial environment. Read the license for more details.
