NetPinger Pro alerts you to problems in your internet connection and documents the exact time and duration of these issues. This registry will help your vendor remedy the problem - once you are convinced that this is not your imagination! The Net Uptime Monitor is designed to be as simple as possible and to achieve exactly that goal with the least effort from you.
The program works in several languages: Bulgarian, English, German.
NetPinger Pro (NPP) uses the Ping command to test the response from three public servers managed by Google, Level 3, and OpenDNS. (See "What is Ping?" Below for explanation.) Each server responds to intervals you can set - usually five seconds. By default, NPP uses the so-called Blocking call to allow the server to respond.
NPP does not check all three servers at once. If the first server does not respond, NPP immediately tries the next server, then the next one. If all three servers do not respond, NPP announces a problem and waits for the log file entry, then writes the problem. If any of the servers respond, then your connection should work. With three servers, NPP ensures that the problem is not only with the appropriate server or that the server is not momentarily slow, overloaded, or not responding.
You can decide for yourself how long the link problem should last before it is truly certain that it exists. A very short problem (a second or less) is unlikely to affect the use of the network, and is not a real benefit. You can specify how long the problem should continue before the NPP alerts you and registers it by recording what has happened in its registry of malfunctions.
The display shows the names and IP addresses of each server. The "light" light flashes yellow when the server responds but fails to complete. Successful sending of ping is shown in green. Returns the response time of the last ping. When the server does not respond, the indicator turns red.
If the connection with the three servers fails, the current length of the problem is red. When the length of the problem exceeds your "Save problems if longer than" setting, NPP plays a warning sound and writes the problem information into your log.
The display also shows the monitoring time (how long the monitor is running), the time since the last recorded fault (waiting time), the start time and the duration of the last recorded fault and the total number of failures registered. The current settings for the test interval and the minimum length The problems that need to be recorded are shown at the bottom of the main window.
Click the minimize button to hide the main program window. The NPP is hidden in the system tray in the "notification area". The NPP icon appears in the notification. You can click on the icon to restore the main screen. In Settings, you can select a "beep sound" or turn off the audible alert.
NPP retains a log of results in a text file - only if your copy is registered. You can view the current log at any time by clicking on the Log button. "The log is displayed in a separate window, and the NPP will continue to update the log even when you watch it, since the log is a plain text file. It will open in Notepad or the default text editor so you can easily edit or print the journal.
Click the Options button on the NPP screen to open the Options window. There are several settings:
• Starting Windows Launch? - Check the box and the NPP will start automatically when your computer starts up. The default setting is - NPP does not start automatically.
• Launch minimized - Check the box and the NPP will be minimized in the system tray automatically when it starts. By default, the installation is not checked - NPP starts with the main screen shown.
Test interval - How many seconds to wait NPP between ping tests when servers respond. Fifteen seconds is the default. If you do not have many problems with the connection, you may want to test less often. Most connectivity problems lead to less frequent but longer damage, so fifteen seconds are a good choice for most users.
TTL settings. You can select value from 1-255. TTL is a value in the Internet Protocol (IP) packet that shows the network router whether the packet is too long in the network or not and must be discarded.
Use sound – This setting determines whether the NPP will alert you with a beep sound and restore the connection. The default is "Use".
Wait for an answer – This setting specifies how much time in milliseconds the NPP should wait for the test server response. The default is 200 ms.
An NPP license removes the trial version terms and allows you to use the full program on a single computer. To purchase a license or register your license, just click on "License" at the bottom of the main screen of the NPP. If you have a license, enter the license key you received and click Sign Up. If you need a license, click Purchase a license to visit our website and make your purchase. If you have already registered your copy of the NPP, your email is displayed in the main window. Click the License button to see the license key.
You must deregister your license before changing your computer. This will make your license key available again for use in your new system. Just click on License, click on Print form to make sure you keep the license key, then click on De-register. The program will return to the test mode. You can then reuse the license key to register NPP on each computer.
