Check Internet or a host to restart it automatically

Postby gunleik » Sun Jan 17, 2010 12:09 am

I have made a batch script for Windows that is used to check if Internet or a spesific host is up and running - if it is not it will use tdtool.exe to restart your modem/router/pc.

Copy the following code and save it as a batch file somewhere at your computer - e.g. CHECK_HOST.bat

Follow the instructions in the REM - comments.

Code: Select all
@ECHO OFF

REM This script will test if your Internet connection or a spesific host
REM is down. If it is down after 4 tries it will power cycle it with
REM your Telldus.

REM Script made by ag at xlntit dot no. If you have any q's or
REM improvements send me a mail or go to
REM http://www.telldus.se/forum/viewtopic.php?t=492

REM If a host is down it will be logged to a file called CHECK_HOST.log
REM in the folder that the script is executed from.

REM You probably want to run the script as a scheduled task
REM e.g. every 10 or 20 minutes.
REM
REM You can do so by setting it to run daily at 00:00. In the
REM properties of the sceduled task go to the schedule tab and click
REM advanced - set it to repeat task until 23:59.
REM
REM To make sure that the script runs minimized as a scheduled task
REM make a shortcut to the script - go to properties on the shortcut
REM and set it to run minimized. After you have made the scheduled
REM task edit the schedule and make sure the RUN command is pointing
REM to the shortcut (should be .lnk - not .bat).

REM Below is a few lines that should be set according to your setup.

REM Set the path to tdtool.exe - include " " if there is a space in the path
set TDTOOL="C:\Program Files\Telldus\tdtool.exe"

REM Set the device number that you want to power cycle if host is down
set DEVICENUM=5

REM IPs to test. If you test if the Internet is up you can probably leave
REM the IPs that I have set.
REM If you want to test your own internal IP (PC/server/ip-phone/whatever)
REM you can set all the 4 IPs to the same IP. Then that one IP will be
REM tested 4 times.
set IP1=195.88.55.16
set IP2=194.63.250.1
set IP3=208.67.222.222
set IP4=208.67.220.220

REM Time to wait between testing each IP in millisec (1000=1sec / 60000=1min)
REM There will be three waiting times, so if it is set to 60000 the IPs will
REM be checked over a time of 3 minutes.
REM I recomend to set it to around 60000 - then if you are currently manualy
REM restarting your Internet/host it will have about 3 minutes to be up and
REM running before this script take it down for a power cycle.
set WaitTime=60000




REM No need to edit below this line unless you like hacking :-p
REM --------------------------------------------------------------------------

set BinDown=0

REM Test IP 1
PING -n 1 %IP1% | FIND "Reply from %IP1%" > NUL
IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO REMOTE_FOUND
ECHO %DATE% %TIME% HOST/NET is DOWN 1 >>CHECK_HOST.log
set BinDown=1
REM ping fake address just for waiting
PING 10.121.212.121 -n 1 -w %WaitTime% >NUL

REM Test IP 2
PING -n 1 %IP2% | FIND "Reply from %IP2%" > NUL
IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO REMOTE_FOUND
ECHO %DATE% %TIME% HOST/NET is DOWN 2 >>CHECK_HOST.log
PING 10.121.212.121 -n 1 -w %WaitTime% >NUL

REM Test IP 3
PING -n 1 %IP3% | FIND "Reply from %IP3%" > NUL
IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO REMOTE_FOUND
ECHO %DATE% %TIME% HOST/NET is DOWN 3 >>CHECK_HOST.log
PING 10.121.212.121 -n 1 -w %WaitTime% >NUL

REM Test IP 4
PING -n 1 %IP4% | FIND "Reply from %IP4%" > NUL
IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO REMOTE_FOUND


REM Host/net is down and we will power cycle it
ECHO %DATE% %TIME% HOST/NET is DOWN 4 - POWER CYCLE DEVICE %DEVICENUM% >>CHECK_HOST.log
%TDTOOL% --off %DEVICENUM%
%TDTOOL% --off %DEVICENUM%
PING 10.121.212.121 -n 1 -w 5000 >NUL
%TDTOOL% --on %DEVICENUM%
%TDTOOL% --on %DEVICENUM%
GOTO END


:REMOTE_FOUND
REM HOST/NET is UP
IF %BinDown%==1 echo %DATE% %TIME% HOST/NET is UP again >>CHECK_HOST.log
GOTO END
