This is my first attempt at creating a skin for Rainmeter. I manage the servers at my company. The server are accross a VPN in different locations. I was looking for some way easily to tell if
A. the servers were up and running
B. the VPN was up and running
Rainmeter looked like the best way with the Ping Plugin but I could not find anyone that had anything that would work "out of the box" for me. So I looked at alot of different peoples code for using the Ping Plugin and to monitor game servers and come up with this.
It tells me the current ping status and if it fails it tells me its offline. Also I get a green dot for a good connection and a red dot for offline or a poor connection (sometimes our VPN gets crazy slow and we have to restart the routers)
I just wanted to give back to the community, and I am sorry that I didnt keep all the credits of others peoples code that I stole/borrowed to make this, as I heavily modified it and butchered it while testing to see what worked!
Any comments or suggestions are welcome!
