Free Server Pinger 2.4 Free Download
Shareware: You can try this program, but this version has some limited features or time usage restrictions. You should purchase it in order to remove those limits.
Operating and building a website or even an online community will require you to put in a lot of effort and time, but with the proper tools you will be able to skip many steps. By using the Free Server Pinger software you will be able to always make sure that your servers are functioning properly.
Without this software tool you would have to manually test each and every web server in order to make sure that they are good and have no issues. However, the Free Server Pinger software tool will perform this task for you automatically so that you don’t have to do so.
The Free Server Pinger tool is easy to use and you can even set up an entire list of servers to test by sending out pings. With this software tool you will even be able to select time intervals for when you want the pings to be sent out, thus allowing you to always make sure is up and running without doing any of the work.
It notifies a variety of Blog Directories and Search Engines that your blog has been updated recently, which is often followed by those Blog Directories and Search Engines checking your site for new content, using a technique called 'Spidering'.

The list of Blogs is configurable, as is the the list of Blog Directories and Search Engines Servers (with a maximum of one thousand), and the application has a default list of those Servers, which includes some of the most popular that I have tested the application with successfully.
Once loaded up it'll do nothing until you either:
* add, modify or delete a blog which you want to notify blog directories about (it'll save your blogs in a file called "blog.txt" in the same directory as the application is run out of)
* add, modify, or delete a blog directory / search engine to notify via an xml-rpc pingback (it'll save your blogs in a file called "ping.txt" in the same directory as the application is run out of)
* start a blog ping session, where it will cycle through all the blogs you've added, and through all the blog directories you've added, and send each one an xml-rpc pingback call (it'll connect to the Internet via the Apache xml-rpc libraries, so you may need to let Java or BlogPing.jar have access through any locally configured firewalls)
* have a look at the about page, which will load info from a special page from this blog, where I'll post help and any news or updates about the application
What do I need to get it to work ?
