|If you're going to put it in a batchfile that runs at startup, I would put "pause" after the ping (next line) so the window stays open until you hit Enter. This would give you time to view the results of the ping command.|
ping [IP to be pinged}
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
