SIP-Ping Utility Program for Windows

VOIP (Voice Over IP) systems use the SIP protocol. That protocol contains an OPTIONS command that is useful for pinging the VOIP system to make sure it is up and running. The SIP-Ping utility software is a simple command line application that can be used to run this ping command. This was inspired by Gravis' SIP_Ping Python program.

SIP-Ping has no dependencies and should run on any Windows system. It can give visual output, or run in a mode that makes it a compatible plugin with PA Server Monitor's Plugin Monitor, or perhaps even as a Nagios plugin.

Download SIP-Ping.exe (Note, the executable is digitally signed by Power Admin LLC)


Anyone can download and use SIP-Ping. You can include it in your open source, freeware and even commercial applications. You may distribute it on your website, on CDs, mail to friends, etc. See the License for all the legalese.


Example running in Plugin mode (default) which returns OK/Alert and two statistics.

Example running in Verbose mode, and using TCP instead of the default UDP, showing what is sent and received.

I have created numerous monitors to watch processes, backups, important ftp downloads, services and this product is saving me lots of time and effort and letting me know important information almost immediately instead of searching for problems. It has saved me a ton of time managing the network.
