Check if server is available

Hello :) ,

I would like to check if a server on network is online and only if it is available to execute the the rest of my code.

Local $iPing = Ping("Server123", 300)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $iPing)

Well Ping function was a good ideia, but it takes 20 seconds to execute this script above if the server is offline.

Any chance to improve the speed if the server is offline? Looking for 1-5 sec +/-

Otherwise user has to wait 20 seconds before the program opens and that is too much :/

PS: at home 4 sec +/- , at office 20 sec +/-

 

Best regards

Hendrik

Have you tried just using the Ip Address of the server instead?

You could try to set the -w and -n parameters to reduce the timout and count.
