This command pings a web site or IP address.
Script Editor > Expand Internet Category > Ping Site
Insert the address of the site to ping. This can be an address such as www.macros.com or an IP address.
Store results in
The results of the ping are saved to an assigned variable. The results include information such as if the ping was successful, or one of a number of error messages if it was not successful.
Seconds to wait for a response
Set the amount of time for the macro to ping the site.
Don't process embedded variables
When using a variable in the address field, this option ignores any % signs found within the variable value and will not attempt to treat the % signs as an embedded variable. It will just expand the % sign as a standard character during macro runtime.
Assume for example a variable of %T% with a value of www.%DomainName%.com
1. With this option selected, the macro will ping the site found at www.%DomainName%.com
2. If the option is not selected, then the macro will assume that there is a variable of %DomainName% and look to expand its value.
