What is the best way to.....

What is the best way to setup a system to automatically ping another IP every x amount of time. I am putting in a VPN system in a branch office, and I want their server to ping 3 other servers located in our other offices every 20 minutes or so to help keep the tunnels alive. I don't need any kind of result from it, just the ping to be sent. Is there a nice and clean way to do this?

...get a thread read?

Not that way!

Make a batch file like this and execute it in DOS:

A:
ping a.b.c.d
wait 1200
goto A

You'll have to find a "wait" program but that shouldn't be hard. If you can't find one I can send you one.

Thanks, I knew some sucker, err, person would wander into my seductively titled thread.
