  • Example of running a Client Access program (CWBPING.exe) from a Command Line program

    Hi All,

    Hope life is going well in the IBM i World.

    I need to ping to a specific IP address from a command line language and based on the reply sent back . Send out an email with the reply message. Does anyone have an example of a command line language that I can accomplish this task. I was hoping I could run a Client Access program(CWBPING.exe) and email me the results.

    Thanks,

    DAC

    There are various examples out there on the Internet of programs that ping. I've written one in the past in CL.

    Something like this would work: http://search400.techtarget.com/tip/...in-a-batch-job

    You can insert a SNDDST for the e-mail need if your system is set up for it.

      Are you just trying to see if the remote system is available? If so, you could do the PING command in CL

      PING RMTSYS(SOMEHOST) MSGMODE(*VERBOSE *ESCAPE)
      MONMSG MSGID(TCP3202 ) EXEC(DO)
      ... something...
      ENDDO

        What system needs to be the source system for the "ping"? CWBPING is a PC command, and it's not really a "ping" at all. What do you actually need? A "ping" from the server or a "CWBPING" from a PC in your network? The PC should also be able to run a "ping".

        There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation, naming things and off-by-one errors.

        Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
