Network Ping is a software test tool for maintaining and debugging network problems on a local area network (LAN). Get an easy view for a full subnet on a single screen. Look at the screen to the left displaying the status for devices 192.168.2.0 - 192.168.2.255. Green and the device is working, yellow, there is a problem, and red, the device is not any longer on the LAN.
Need telnet access to a router, no problem, a Telnet console application is also included.
Compared to the Lite version the full version has:
- Up to 400 entries can be saved in the device list, the lite version is limited to 4
- Telnet to any port
- Subnet ping is not interrupted after 255 ping request.
- Ping a single IP address

Simple and functional
Simple tool for ping and trace route. Very useful and recently updated with a new and more appealing App logo.
I wish I could change the colors. The new blue on gray is more difficult for me to see.
Traceroute doesn't work on AT&T...and support is rude!
The software is programmed to stop the traceroute at the first unresponsive hop. The problem is, the first router on AT&T's network is unresponsive, which means that traceroutes can't be completed on AT&T's network!
A normal traceroute program will continue attempting to ping further routers even after an unresponsive router, and often, it will find further routers.
I emailed the company about this bug (it should be a relarively simple fix) and received the following reply back:
>this is how the software is designed to work. If you need another functionality, look for another product, as there are no plans to change the trace route functionality.
>jan f - mochasoft support
I know this software is free, but with this kind of an attitude from support staff (or the developer himself/herself, if it is a single-person company!) does not engender loyalty.
I don't think I'll be purchasing any products from this company.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
