    Script it.. It isn't that hard.. Windows batch file or *nix shell script?

    nmap will also do it using the -sP switch.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    krytonic, I believe the guy has a long list of ips that he is intending to use so simply doing that command over and over would be cumbersome. Whereas a tool that he can simply copy and paste the ip addresses to would be much simpler.

    To answer the op question I dont know of any particular tool, I am more partial to writing code when I need to do things. It seems that you have plenty of suggestions already. If you need some perl or c++ code give me a shout and I will toss you something together.

    It would take about 10 minutes to script it. I would use VBS. Here is a quick link to an example vbs file that does what you want. http://
