I use a few shell accounts from around the place to check our firewall here.
'GREX' (cyberspace.org) will give you a free account. For a small fee they
will let you run a bot on their server too.

There are also a few companys like www.alertsite.com that will remotly keep
tabs on your server for you.


| We are having sporadic reports of our web server not responding.
| Could be DNS, could be network, could be firewalls,
|  could be the server itself.
| I need a quick tool to set up monitoring,
|  locally and from the sites that are having the problem.
| I'd need to check DNS, ping, and a page get,
|  preferably direct and through several remote proxies.
| What's quick to set up, can call various scripts to check different
|  and comes with a good cookbook of already written scripts.
| eg: I'd need a GET script that effectively does a shift-reload
|  against the remote proxy, or I'll only be testing the proxy.
