    Details

    IFPING is a Windows based commandline utility that checks if a specified host is reachable and then returns the ERRORLEVEL value back to the CMD. If you use batch files to connect network drives with the NET USE command their is no way to test if the 'server' is connectable via the network before running the NET USE commands.

    Since failing NET USE commands take a long time it would be useful to test connection before attemting to NET USE the shares.

    This IFPING tool will only PING the 'server' it will not test for SMB connection.

    Check the readme for known issues and disclaimer information.

    Have fun IFPING-ing.
