PingPort is a command-line utility that will let you ping a TCP port and see what is the latency between you and the pinged server.
- Ping any TCP port
- Can be called using protocol port name instead of port number (such as https,dns,rpc … full list in Sources/Protocol.ini)
- Can beep if status is changing from online to offline and vice versa
- Displays how much time the equipment has been offline
- Sub-millisecond latency display
- Execute specific scripts (exe, ps1, or bat) when going up or down
- Two versions : Setup installer (coming back soon) and Portable
Usage : pingport HOSTNAME:PROTOCOL [–timeout:VALUE] [–beep]
- HOST : can be supplied using either its HOSTNAME or IP
- PORT : a valid TCP port / protocol shortname (http,ssh,telnet,dns …)
- -b / –beep : beep when coming offline (low-pitch) / online (high-pitch)
- -t / –test-only : Test only one time and returns 0 if down, 1 if up
- -i : / –interval: Timeout in milliseconds (default is 1000)
- –script-down: / -sd: Script (exe, ps1 or bat) to execute when going down
- –script-up: / -su: Script (exe, ps1 or bat) to execute when going up
- pingport google.com:http

PeekMon is a free tool for monitoring servers.
It’s very versatile and can be used on any type of server (Unix/Linux, Windows …).
It actually connects to your server by opening a TCP socket on a defined port and will display the latency.
- Monitors any TCP port on any server
- Shows a status icon in the system tray
- Text can be customized using macros (Latency, hostname …)
- Beeping if a server become offline (option)
- Option to start with Windows
- Connectivity detection (no alert if you only lose internet connection)
- Advanced monitoring with Linfo
