I have two separate networks. Network-A is 10.1.1.2 and the other one Network-B is 10.1.1.3. I have a machine that serve as a Mail Server, attached to network-A. Then, i have 3 personal computers attached to network-B. Network-B can be considered to be my private network separated from the mailserver. All run on XP Pro.
My question is if i want to know if the mailserver is up and running at all times from my private network. what should i do? i mean i don't think i can ping the mailserver from a computer sit on network-B right? Sorry i'm still learning about networking. I think this involves writing a program or script. but i just don't know where to start. I need some guidance here.
The reason i'm doing this is because it occasionally get frozen or something.
