The Device.InterDevice.Ping activity allows you to Ping a list of Hosts from the selected Devices.
CatTools will log into each device in turn and perform a ping test to each device listed. Alternatively, it will ping all other devices that have been selected.
There are two options available for which devices are pinged.
1. You may enter a list of Host names and IP Addresses in the "Ping a list of Hosts" field, under the Options tab. CatTools will login to each selected device and ping each listed Host in turn.
2. You may check the "Or, ping all other selected devices" box (also under the Options tab).
CatTools will then start with the first selected Device and ping all the others in turn, move to the second Device and ping all others in turn, and so on until all selected Devices have sent Ping requests to all other selected Devices. This test can ensure that you have full connectivity from each device to all other devices.
CatTools will then create a Report in the form of a table listing each Device and the results of each Ping originated by that Device.
Under the Options tab you can also check the option to have CatTools report only on failed Ping requests. This will keep the Report as small as possible and draw attention only to fault conditions on your network.
The Hostname, IP Address information can be entered in two formats:
The Hostname is used in the Report, in its own column, which simply makes it easier to read.
Main Server, 192.168.1.1
Sales router, 192.168.2.1
ISP DNS, 126.96.36.199
