    Hello all,
    I was thinking of making a program that would attempt to connect to BitTorrent sites and check to make sure they were up or not. If I were to write this program in VB, is there a way to possibly ping a site? Or is there a better way to detect whether a site is up or down?

    Hmm...

    I was thinking more of the line of checking if, mirror 1 of suprnova was up, then checking mirror 2, and so on. I wanted an easier way to connect to torrent sites, especially suprnova, because suprnova has so many mirrors and only some mirrors are either up or are running fast.

    Well pinging won't exactly cut it, as some servers block that and it doesn't necessarily means the HTTP server is up.

    Torrentspy only checks if the Trackers are up, not the sites themselves

    There are quite a few PHP scripts that check if a site is up or not. You can Google for them. Don't know of any VB scripts for that.

    Also in the case of Suprnova, most torrentfiles are located on different servers.
