TCP port check

PingTool gives you the ability to check if devices answer on certain TCP ports. You can achieve this by specifying a TCP port in the properties of the object or by using the PortCheck command line tool.

The TCP PortCheck tool is integrated in PingTool and enables very convenient port monitoring. You can check single or multiple objects on a single or multiple TCP ports.

Port check on "important ports" or on more than 1000 known TCP ports can be done with one click. You can configure yourself which ports are "important" for you.

The results are displayed continuously in real time.
