Command / script to find out if login is down

    Ok I came up with a solution to everyone's problems today with a script to see if the login servers are down - so they know that when it is stuck at 25% it is NOT the game! It's simple. You can either run terminal and input:
    Code:
     ping 73.248.136.133
    
    and if this comes up:
    Code:
    7 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 6048ms
    
    
    or similar, you know the servers are down. If this comes up:
    Code:
    7 packets transmitted, 7 received, 0% packet loss, time 100ms
    
    
    then the servers are up and it's either the client or something not allowing you to connect through the TSO Client (firewall?) and you do need to post something.
    You can save the ping command as a script and run it if you like.

    You gave me an idea. As the site is on php we can have this for banner, or somewhere at the top of the website.

    Edit: BTW the image is dynamic pinging the login "server : port" as my signature(works with the game i am playing).We should also have the icon as favicon ;)

    It should have that in the code, but with a timer, if it stays on one part of a progress number (e.g: 25%, 50%) for at least 7 seconds, then it will pop up a message saying: "EA.COM is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later."

    I like that idea.

    Server should be back up tonight (that's tomorrow for you americans).
    I had to review a concert last night.

    I guess we'll have to see when Afr0 brings the server back up :D
    Edit: They both return a ping of 100% package loss.

    Pinging is a bit inaccurate as it pings the computer and not the connection of the port. So if the computer is running it will always send you a pong back.

    Indeed that's the IP.

    The servers are up:
    Code:
    ping 173.248.136.133 
    Code:
    ping 73.248.136.133
    But neither of the IP's return any of the packets.

    What are you ping-ing with?

    Keep in mind that: "Pinging is a bit inaccurate as it pings the computer and not the connection of the port. So if the computer is running it will always send you a pong back."

    BTW as i said to Afro already and i confirmed myself as the server is now online, my webspace doesn't support sockets(which are used to ping the server). I guess i'll find another way, or maybe send the script to afro's webspace if he wants.
