PC Buzzer ping

  • Hi,

    I was wondering is there anyway to get the PC Speaker to beep when trying to ping a connection or when a VLAN goes down or any connection?

    Not without scripting it in some way. But it you do that then you can use the beep command.

    You can do the ping if you ssh to your router, its not really much use unless your using ping to see if a device is back up after a reboot.

    −A Audible. Output a bell (ASCII 0x07) character when no packet is received before the next packet is transmitted. To cater for round-trip times that are longer than the interval between transmissions, further missing packets cause a bell only if the maximum number of unreceived packets has increased.

    −a Audible. Include a bell (ASCII 0x07) character in the output when any packet is received. This option is ignored if other format options are present.
