NAME

       serverping - check the status of an XEvil server

SYNOPSIS

       serverping [-count num_tries] [-timeout timeout_ms] server_name[:port]

DESCRIPTION

       serverping  is  a  simple  utility  to give you information on an XEvil
       server, such as the game style, who is playing, and how well  they  are
       doing.

OPTIONS

       -count num_tries
              specify the number of pings to send before giving up, default=3

       -timeout timeout_ms
              specify  the  time in milliseconds to wait for a response before
              giving up, default=1000

       server_name[:port]
              specify the server name or IP  address,  optionally  with  port,
              default port is 6066

EXAMPLES

       serverping whitehouse.gov
              This  will give you the game status of the XEvil game running on
              the server at whitehouse.gov, at default port 6066. It will  try
              3  times,  and  wait 1 sec per try. At the time of this writing,
              whitehouse.gov is not running an XEvil server.

       serverping -timeout 5000 292.43.199.64:9999
              This will give you the game status of the XEvil game running  on
              the  server at 292.43.199.64, at port 9999. It will try 3 times,
              and wait 5 sec per try. 292.43.199.64 is not a valid IP address.
