Sometimes, it’s useful to be able to ping a PC or server from “remotely” – to see if a server is online, but might not be accessible from your own machine (firewall problems ?)
Found this – just-ping.com
Just need to enter an IP address – or server name, and you get results from up-to 18 different sources.
Well – just-ping can see the SDM VPN – but no response. So – it’s not just MY machine that’s the problem !
