    i'm not sure what you mean?
    for *nix there is hPing...
    i dunno much about any windows tools?
    there is the "ping" command:
    Code:
    Usage: ping [-t] [-a] [-n count] [-l size] [-f] [-i TTL] [-v TOS]
    
                [-r count] [-s count] [[-j host-list] | [-k host-list]]
    
                [-w timeout] destination-list
    
    
    
    Options:
    
        -t             Ping the specified host until stopped.
    
                       To see statistics and continue - type Control-Break;
    
                       To stop - type Control-C.
    
        -a             Resolve addresses to hostnames.
    
        -n count       Number of echo requests to send.
    
        -l size        Send buffer size.
    
        -f             Set Don't Fragment flag in packet.
    
        -i TTL         Time To Live.
    
        -v TOS         Type Of Service.
    
        -r count       Record route for count hops.
    
        -s count       Timestamp for count hops.
    
        -j host-list   Loose source route along host-list.
    
        -k host-list   Strict source route along host-list.

    isn't pinging from DOS just about as good as it gets?

    I don't use Windows, however I believe that this : http://www.ipswitch.com/products/WS_Ping/ ; may be along the lines of what you are looking for. It would seem that this is a pretty comprehensive suite of utilities.
    There are some decent web based utilities as well. I don't know that any of them give you control of the switches you could pass to the command, but the tools work. Check out :
    http://nitrous.digex.net/
    http://codeflux.com/tools.html
    http://www.visualware.com/visualroute/index.html

    I'm sure that a good google search will turn up more if you're interested..

    The normal ping command does alot. It has a lot of parameters and options. rtfm on the ping that is on your computer.

    First of all, i hope the network scan is for local use... but heh... I'll leave the ethics up to you...

    There's a simple but good scanner, I use from time to time.....

    http://www.angryziber.com/ipscan/ , you can dld it , or open it from the weppage

    The range has to be following though..... like 172.16.100.1 - 172.16.100.255....

    Hope this is what ya mean ,

    I've tried all the ping scanners mentioned, and NMap is by far the most complete.
