Server Ping Pro

I've decided to release version 1.5 of Server Ping as a paid-for gadget as there is quite a lot of interest for a version that can support more than 5 servers. Below is a table of the features showing the difference between the two versions and a PayPal button. Once you click the PayPal button this will take you to a payment page, once you complete payment I'll email you the link to download the gadget.

The main difference between the two is the Pro version supports up to 50 servers and is scaleable and auto-resizes.

EDIT: Server ping pro now supports different thresholds for Green and Orange LEDs showing how long the server takes to respond to pings




Ping or traffic light display Tick Tick
Quick access to ping, traceroute and DNS Lookup tools Tick Tick
Support for IP's and domains Tick Tick
Adjustable timeout and refresh rate Tick Tick
Automatic persistent settings saving Tick Tick
Support for 5 servers Tick Tick
Support for 50 servers   Tick
Auto-resizing   Tick

Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!
