The Ping Master

May 16, 2010

I’ve begun work on integrating exercise logging into Activate Your Glutes (more on that in a separate post) but this weekend I took a slight diversion to help out a friend who was looking for a basic network tool.

Basically he wants to run a command to restart a software VPN connection when and if it fails to connect to a specified IP address along with a GUI for configuring it and an installer for, errr, installing it.

As I’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to learn some WPF best practice (up until now I’ve skirted around that and used it much like Windows Forms) and write my first Wix installer this seemed like a win for all.

The result is The Ping Master which you can find on CodePlex.

I still have a little work to do, mainly some unit tests and beautification, but hopefully its useful already.
