In theory, you could've used the shell:// url scheme for that, but most browsers have blocked that due to security concerns. I would probably run an apache server with php scripts to perform similar functions, for example PHP Ping.
Thanks...that was actually a little more complex then I needed. I ended up just making copies of the Command Prompt shortcut using the /k option to include the proper "ping" string. Then I just linked to those.
This was all internal so no access was need to them from outside the network.
I do appreciate the help though, and I will probably look into it when I want to make it a little less "quick & dirty".

I don't have the device myself but I was curious. First bullet point: the Kobo is not an Android device so it can't (hasn't?) be rooted but I've not known of any other hacks for it. Second: From the official site, it lists epub and pdf.
