Verify your server and router connections with Ping IT

Do you need a quick and easy way to verify your server and router connections? Try my CL program, PINGIT. It will display your server or router names on screen and then display the connection verification statistics in your joblog at the end of the program. Add more servers and routers as needed for your network configuration. This program is very useful for troubleshooting communication problems on your network.
