    What exactly is not working? What do you want to do?

    I'm not sure ping supports that time interval...

    Regards
  • I am supposed to read from a configuration while with a list of ip addresses and then ping those to see if they are reachable or not. I also need to add a timestamp for the results.

    And what format is the info in? one ip per line?

    How do you want the output, where to put the timestamp and how you want to express the reachability?

    You need to be much more preocise in your questions ;)

    Yes, it is one ip per line. Timestamp can infront of the output.

    This is the code without the date. it works fine but no date. I tried to attach the config file but it is not supported.
