Ping is as simple it gets - it just takes a hostname and a port number and checks the connectivity. Tapping the ping button will use port 7 (ICMP) if no input is given. Any other port number will be checked as it is. If you don't have DNS in your network, try with IP addresses. A history is maintained of all checks done so far. You can recall any item from the history by tapping on it. Use the delete button to clear the history. I developed this application while working on Get Me Tones companion app for Windows Phone since there were some problems with my network and I wanted to check connectivity from the phone itself to be sure. Update in 1.1: - Fixed a bug where deleting history didn't destroy the item list in memory - Changed default ping port to 135 since port 7 isn't really ping - Ping button gets disabled until it gets a reply or times out Get in touch with the developer at ashish [at] wpfied.com
1/14/2015Needs to show IP address
1/3/2015Loses port number when resuming.
11/10/2014Did not do what I expected. Not a true ping as far as I can tell.
11/8/2014Ok, but it seems to default to port 135. If you didn't know the difference. . .
10/24/2014Seems to work with out any fuss. Simple interface. Gives me status at a glance.
8/25/2014Ping Pings! Simple, no frills, out does what it says without invading your privacy. Suggestions for future development: Add the ability to have a list of favorites (commonly pinged devices) that are not cleared when you clear the history. Also scheduled background operation with notification of a ping fails could be a boon to IT pros.
