I want to know if someone is online on the same network using ICMP requests.
Being able to ping another workstation on the network to see if its currently on.
A batch file with if and then statements, if 100% packet loss then says user is unavailable.
if ping was successful then user is available.
I’m not sure how to go about with this batch file.
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion set IP=... for /f "delims=() tokens=2" %%a in ('ping %IP% ^| find "% loss"') do ( set loss=%%a set loss=!loss:% loss=! if !loss! equ 100 ( echo %IP% is unavailable ) else ( echo %IP% is available ) ) endlocal
