Host Tree and Check box for Pinging Host



  • Hi Fog Team,

    First let me say, I love the program and it has made imaging computer a bit easier. I was wondering if there was a way to mirror Windows Folders in the Host Tab. Like putting computers in to folder\groups and just showing the Group and Computer without Groups in the ALL Host Page. This would make the list smaller and easier to manage.
    Also have a way to control the pinging of host with in the ALL host page. Right now I only have 65 host but it takes about 2 to 3 mins for all the pings to get done. Just don’t want to have the problem later on when there are more computers. I know that you don’t have to wait for them to ping but it would be nice for them not to try. Just to make it more of a pain, It would be nice to have this option in Groups.

    Again just ideas and Thanks for such a great program.

    [quote=“TomB, post: 9070, member: 2667”]I too would like a disable ping system-wide and on a per-host basis. I am working in a small school environment and there isn’t a DNS server that can register the names so the pinging always times out.

    Great program.[/quote]
