New Scripts

The IP-Scripts are coming back.

We are on our way to extend serversniff with some new IP-Scripts. We started today with a simple icmp-ping, that simply sends 4 ICMP-Echo-Requests to a given host.

Additionally, for a simple ping would be quite lame, we implented what we call a "Ping-Row", that sends about 16 ICMP-Echo-Requests with increasing packetsizes. You'll be surprised how many sites allow small pings, while their routers or firewalls sort out the hugeICMP-Packets.
