We are using ping command to monitor the networks, Sometimes we have to monitor multiple IP address with continuous ping in different windows. Normal command line is with a black colour background and white text. But it will be better to show a red window if the Request timed out. And the default success pings with a green background. Here is the script to do the ping with color output results.
What is happening in this Batch file?
Prompting an IP address and set to a variable named %IP%, and its pinging once with 32 bytes of data. If it is failed the background color will change to red. And display “Request timed out” then wait for some title . We used a self ping for sleep function. The code put it in loop so it will ping continuously.
