Integrating External Tools
Ping Monitor allows you to launch external tools directly from the Hosts view, providing host properties as the command line parameters. The options are available in the External Tools submenu of the Hosts view pop-up menu when a single host is selected. The program comes with a built-in set of predefined tools that allow you to open remote desktop connection to the host, view the hosted web-site in a browser, launch console utilities, such a ping and tracert. You can disable predefined tools and add you custom ones on the External Tools preference page, which can be also reached directly from the menu when choosing the Configure External Tools option. Please note, that the external tools are launched on the client side, i.e. on the PC where the Ping Monitor client is running.
