EMCO Ping Monitor Free
Automatically check the connection to websites or network hosts

EMCO Ping Monitor is a powerful tool that will check the availability of systems on your network, or the internet.

To use the program you simply enter the IP addresses or host names of the systems or sites you'd like to monitor (up to five in this free version), click the Start button - and that's it. EMCO Ping Monitor will regularly ping the systems you've specified, as well as displaying basic statistics (monitoring time, uptime, average response time and so on).

If a problem occurs - you lose connection to a particular host, say - then the program will warn you by playing a sound and showing a balloon tip in the system tray. But you can also have it send email alerts, if you like, to yourself or anyone else who might be interested.

And if that's not enough then there are a host of other settings available here, from configuring the ping itself (timeout, packet size, TTL, more) to choosing custom actions that will define exactly what your system does when a particular ping event occurs.

EMCO Ping Monitor Professional takes all these features, and adds more. In particular, it can support monitoring of an unlimited number of hosts, and allows you to configure most settings on a per-host basis. The program is available for $49, and you can read more about its capabilities on the EMCO site.

Changelog

New and improved features

The program now supports early access version of .NET Framework 4.7.1 shipped with Windows 10 Insider Preview

Verdict:

An effective and flexible way to monitor the availability of your network hosts

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
