Singer is a portable freeware program for quickly pinging multiple IP addresses and hostnames.
Does the world really need another ping tool? We would have said no, but it turns out that there is more than enough here to justify the existence of the program.
SPinger comes from a reliable developer – Jody Holmes, aka Skwire Empire – and is small, convenient, and wireless – just unzip and go.
Entering addresses to ping can be very simple. The left panel â€œAddresses and Subnetsâ€ is actually just a text box in which you can enter as many addresses as you want, one per line: google.com, 127.0.0.1, 192.168.1.1 and so on.
Exceptionally, the program can also generate multiple IP addresses from subnets. Entering 192.168.1.0/25 and clicking “Generate” creates a list including 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3 and more, up to 192.168.1.128.
A “DNS Scan” button quickly retrieves host names from your IP addresses, if any.
When you’re ready, click “Start Pings” to view ping times and highlight failures in your address range.
Checking the “Loop” box performs regular pings and updates the “Last Success” and “Last Fail” columns to show you the last state change.
An Options screen allows you to set the number of threads to use when pinging, packet size, pings per IP, loop delay, highlight colors for good / bad pings, and more.
And if you think networking tools must be boring, check out the Icon Themes page, where you can customize the user interface with options like “Angry Birds,” “Ninja Bear,” and “Pac-Man. “. Not really. Check it out!
Singer is available for Windows 7 and later.
