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 have a Dell Ultrasharp 17" monitor, and my video card is an ATI Radeon 850 XT Platinum Edition. For the past, oh, two days my computer has been acting strange. The brightness of my monitor goes way up (but everything is pretty much readable)
