Hello I need to ping an address during the night until morning for checking connection in command prompt. I also want to make a log file from the results of the pings. How can I do that? I resized the size of buffers to maximum but maybe it is not too much or maybe during the night I lost the results. Could you please help me?Thank you! ----- Regards Mahnaz

Well Mahnaz, I recommend using a really cool free easy to use program called Pingplotter. You can ping IP addresses to your heart’s content and it will create excellent graphs to show latency and uptime etc.

Just Google Pingplotter and you’ll find it.

Quick and dirty:

open a command prompt in a folder. Use the following command:

ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -t >ping.txt

This will run a continuous ping and output to a text file

Ex : If we want to create log file into C Drive with abc.txt file name then the command is:

ping 10.120.222.55 -t >c:\abc.txt
