Implementing Ping in ASP.Net


Implementing Ping in ASP.Net


In this Article We will see, how can we ping a host name/ address to check whether it is up or not..
Pinging can be of great help to detect the current status of a website or to check the availability of the Server...

First of All add the following Namespaces:


using System.Net;
using System.Net.NetworkInformation;
using System.Text;

Then Create the  Design Page using the Code below:


<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
        <ContentTemplate>
            <table width="600" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#cccccc">
                <tr>
                    <td width="100" align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" class="header1">
                        Hostname/IP:
                    </td>
                    <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
                        <asp:TextBox ID="txtHost" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                        &nbsp;&nbsp;
                        <asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" OnClick="btnSubmit_Click" Text="Submit" />
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td width="100" align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" class="header1">
                        Ping Results:
                    </td>
                    <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
                        <asp:TextBox ID="txtPing" runat="server" Height="400px" TextMode="MultiLine" Width="400px"></asp:TextBox>&nbsp;
 
                        <asp:Label ID="lblStatus" runat="server"></asp:Label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            </table>
            <asp:Timer ID="Timer1" runat="server" Interval="4000" OnTick="Timer1_Tick">
            </asp:Timer>
        </ContentTemplate>
    </asp:UpdatePanel>


Finally Use the following Code Snippet in the Code Behind:


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
 
        }
        protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                lblStatus.Text = "";
                sendSubmit();
            }
            catch (Exception err)
            {
                lblStatus.Text = err.Message;
            }
        }
 
        protected void Timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if(txtHost.Text != "")
                sendSubmit();
        }
 
        public void sendSubmit()
        {
            Ping ping = new Ping();
            PingReply pingreply = ping.Send(txtHost.Text);
            txtPing.Text += "\r\nAddress: " + pingreply.Address + "\r\n";
            txtPing.Text += "Roundtrip Time: " + pingreply.RoundtripTime + "\r\n";
            txtPing.Text += "TTL (Time To Live): " + pingreply.Options.Ttl + "\r\n";
            txtPing.Text += "Buffer Size: " + pingreply.Buffer.Length.ToString() + "\r\n";
        }


What This Code will do for you is that It will ping the entered website in the text-box every 4 second and display the ping result in the textbox.
