This is a tool similar to the standard ping command we find in almost every os, but instead of using the icmp protocol, it uses the tcp protocol. With ‘tcping’ you can send tcp packets to a host & port. That way we can more in depth checks on network services or monitor them.
tcping %host% > 1 ping to the host on port 80
tcping %host% %port% > 1 ping to the host on custom port
tcping -t %host% %port% > continuous ping to the host on custom port
‘Tcping’ can be installed with chocolatey, but can also be downloaded on the website below. No installation is required.
