O.K. I tend to hate this, but here is goes.
Does anyone know the correct format of the following command to use in Win9x, and not NT/2k

c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe /Q /E:1024 /C FOR /F "TOKENS=2* DELIMS= " %%i IN ('"PING -a -n 1 216.239.51.100 | FIND "]""') DO ECHO %%i >c:\report.txt
pause

This will work in a NT format, but get an invalid switch for Win9x.

Sad thing is that I cannot find out where that invalid witch is.

Any Clues????

well the first clue is that "c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe" is NT specific. Should be %comspec%.

But then you probably are not using "c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe" or else you would not be getting an "invalid switch" error.

I don't have any Wintendos to test on but my guess it the /Q switch. Spark up a DOS box and enter COMMAND /? to see the valid switches.

LOL yes I know that c:\windows\command.com, and c:\winnt]system32\cmd.exe are the two different ones.
Thanks for pointing that out LLigetfa.

I do have %comspec% in the Kix script, and then pulling the result, to display the information.

Al that works, but here is the main issues I have.

SHELL '%Comspec% /Q /E:1024 /C FOR /F "TOKENS=2* DELIMS= " %%i IN ('+ CHR(39)
+ '"PING -a -n 1 $ipnum | FIND "]""' + CHR(39) + ') DO ECHO %%i >' + $tempfile

Only works in a NT/2K/XP enviorment.

DOS only tells me I have an inavlid switch on a WIN9X platform.

And for the life of me I cannot find that stupid invalid switch. [Mad]

In short I was just trying to ping two IP's
One is google.com, and the other is behind a vpn.

Wanted to know the results of the two so that I can know if the user is logged onto the ISP, and then the VPN.

Using Watlz function this is what I have:
code:
 ? REVPING("1.1.100.229")
? @error
? REVPING("216.239.51.100")
? @error
? "DONE"
get $

FUNCTION REVPING($ipnum)
DIM $nameip, $tempfile
$tempfile = "%temp%\nameip.txt"

SHELL '%Comspec% /Q /E:1024 /C FOR /F "TOKENS=2* DELIMS= " %%i IN ('+ CHR(39)
+ '"PING -a -n 1 $ipnum | FIND "]""' + CHR(39) + ') DO ECHO %%i >' + $tempfile

IF OPEN(10,$tempfile,2) = 0 $nameip = READLINE(10)
ELSE $nameip = ""
ENDIF
IF CLOSE(10) = 0
DEL $tempfile
ENDIF
IF $nameip <> "" $revping = TRIM($nameip)
EXIT (0)
ELSE $revping = "UNRESOLVED"
EXIT (1)
ENDIF
ENDFUNCTION

It works just right, but only on a NT platform. [Embarrassed]

So Hopefully some OLD SCHOOL people can tell me what the hell is the invalid switch. [Big Grin]

Hmmm ... looking at the code tells me that I did actually wrote that line [Big Grin]

If you look a bit deeper you will find ping() udf which Waltz took and adapted to return names from ip ...

At least I mentioned in REQUIREMENTS the supported OS's [Wink]

Ahh O.K. jpols is de man to ask!
Your Ping() function also for a NT platform. it does in fact work perfect, and I do not reallt care about the DNS hostname conversion.

Here is the challenege for the day.
Can you, or is it possible to ping the followng IP's in a WIN9X platform:
VPN 1.1.100.229
PUBLIC 216.239.51.100
and just say true or false if it connected to the IP's or not?

Think you have to go the hard way piping the output to a textfile open, read and do a little string manipulation ... or you might also want to try one of the pipe() udfs we got

Or did you meant saying if the ping returns reply ?

That is actually possible ... or was it a fact that 'find' also denied to work on 9x ?
Can't remember anymore ... long time not used 9x for anything else than gaming [Big Grin]

Ahhhh Gaming gooood.... [Smile]

But just want to do like this in DOS
ping 216.239.51.100

but in KIX how can you do that?

In short I just wanted to know if you pinged an ip it could tell you yeah I can see it, or NOPE cannot see that ip, so that the rest of my script will continue or not.

So if the script or a function could just outpu true or false the the IP in the request.

sure it can [Wink]

something like:
code:
shell '%comspec% /c ping $ip | find "0% loss" >null'
if @error
"could not ping"
else
"ping succesfull"
endif

So, what exactly is your problem? You cannot SHELL out your PING and then check a resulting text file?

Lonkeros code doesn't work for you?

The PING() UDF doesn't work for you?

Could you please be precise?

This may be a bit late, but FOR /F is not supported in 9x. I don't have any 9x boxes right at hand, so I can't be much more help than that on the shell side, but think you would probably be best off sending the output to file and parsing that in KiX.

Well, not sure but every ping no matter if it is a bad ip or a good ip, says ping sucessfull.

so if I ran your script to ping 0.0.1.1 it says it pinged, and if you place in a good ip, it says the same result.

well, simple check to ping reply retrieved that the string was little wrong.
you will be perfectly server with:
code:
$ip="0.0.1.1"
shell '%comspec% /c ping $ip | find "(0% loss)" >null'
if @error
"could not ping"
else
"ping succesfull"
endif
