(For an explanation of the GPS permission, see below.)

Displays network information and diagnostics: Ping a server (via ICMP over IPv4 or IPv6 and TCP), DNS lookup (with geographical lookup of IP addresses), reverse DNS lookup, WHOIS queries, inspecting HTTP response headers, trace routes (also with IP address geo lookup), check whether a range of ports is open, scan a host for SSL versions and ciphers, and look up the location of hosts and whether it's reachable from the public internet. It also shows details of the current network setup and connection of the device, including netstat information. "Wake on LAN" functionality for waking up machines. Optional "NetSentry" monitors network interfaces and warns of breaching usage limits.

Includes a home screen widget for long-running pings.

Recently used hosts, IP addresses and DNS servers are remembered for auto-completion.

The results can be copied (via long-click on the output text), sent via email or stored in a file as text or PDF. A history of the results of recent operations is kept (swipe left and right to switch between tabs).

Numerous options (like using an alternative name server, Ping TTL, showing ping times for each traceroute step, Broadcast Ping, using HTTPS, setting the HTTP port number, selection of DNS record types to query, etc.) are available through a long-click on the "Go" button.

Contains no ads.

Please join the Google community "Ping & DNS" where I support this app, especially if you're having problems.

WHY THE GPS PERMISSION? First off, GPS is only accessed if the "Show Location" checkbox is set in the Ping Options dialog. This checkbox is turned off by default, so unless you explicitly set it, you don't need to worry about your location ever being tracked. Tracking location is useful for measuring ping times during long-running pings across large areas, like a factory or a university campus. Once a long-running ping with location is done, a Google Earth file (.dmz) is created that shows the ping times along with the geo location of each ping. Most people will never need this option, so you don't have to worry. And even if you do use it, location data is stored on the device, it is not sent or uploaded anywhere (the exception being if you attach the Google Earth file to an outgoing email - in which case you're in charge of where the email is sent to). So all the negative comments you may see in the Play Store are unfounded.

App ChangeLog

  • Better error reporting if a DNS lookup fails.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the ping widget from running for some users.
  • On Android 9 Pie, re-enabled IPv6 for the ping widget, and disabled it for traceroute.
  • Fixed a couple of crashes that affected some NetSentry users.

Reviews From google play store

Apps like "OS Monitor" and "Network Connections" show which apps have established a connection, it would be useful if Ping&Net could offer this as an option, so far Ping & Net will only show the raw connections.

Excellent app. Simple intuitive interface yet packed full of useful basic network tests. A good addition to any network or systems engineer toolbox.

Best app for checking network connectivity, host status, and sysadmin tasks. Period

Great product, I like would like the developer to add custom request method options in the http header feature

very useful for investigating network issues.

I use Ping & Net to compare response times for various VPN servers. Speed testing apps test the speed of their own servers in the VPN server area, which I doubt gives an accurate comparison; they also grab personal information. For what I do with this product, it seems to work well. I like that it requires no permissions and apparently sends no unnecessary private information back to the mother ship as Google and Facebook do.

It seems to have everything! There are so many useful things on this app that make it the most useful one I've come across so far. I'm only a student but it has everything I need

It's hard to find an app that is this good nowdays, but trust me, this one is AMAZING especially when you want to test your website. It helped me discover a bug that I didn't even know existed on my website, and thanks to this app, now I can run my website without any safety issues..

Great app, but it would be even better if there was a way to default some functions to the current network/IP Address. For example, if I want to do a Subnet Scan, it could default to the current network? At the moment I have to go elsewhere to find my current details and then come back to input them manually.

Getting a bad case of bit rot. It's no longer compatible with many WHOIS responses. DNS sometimes stops working. Otherwise a handy Swiss Army knife of networking tools.

This app has it ALL plus some!! And SO accurate! I've been having connection problems on LTE, downloaded 4 or 5 "other" ping/tracerroute/etc. apps plus was using online ping/tracers, but still couldn't find the problem. Five minutes with this app & I promptly deleted everything else & found my problem (don't yet know how to fix my problem, but I finally see it)! It's been more than 10 hours & I can't stop playing on this app! :-) A HUGE thank you to the developer.

How to use this tool for lower ping plz help any one

There are many fake network tools on Google Play or loaded with ads or spyware. This is totaly FREE OF ADS! LOVE IT. However,my favorite tool is PingPlotter from Pingman, but it is not available for Android and they don't seem to have that in their roadmap. Otherwise; I can highly recommend this app!

Hi developers. Don't know how to contact you other way. Your PING software stop working properly with VPN connection. For example it doesn't work at all when "NoRoot Firewall" is started. It worked fine before update. Please fix this. Thanks

Great toolkit. Saves me a lot of time not having to run back to my desk or to the NOC, or carry a laptop to the closets, etc. Easy to use. Can't speak to IPv6, but for IPv4 it works great.

Ping IPv6 was the reason I installed this but it doesn't work at all for that. No information is even displayed to tell you what it is trying to do or if it thinks there's a problem or anything. Very strange.

An awesome collection of networking tools that is well implemented. Invaluable!

Does what it says, and what I need it to do. And very nice as well - everything is configurable.

The latest update has now broken the Ping & Net widget on my phone. The release notes say it updated the widget. For me the widget was working fine before the update. After the update the widget is blank and does nothing.

The app was running fine until the last update. Now it's throwing "Attempt to get length of null array" exception for all DNS queries on Galaxy S7 running Oreo (8.0.0).

I am the developer of a competing app 'IPv6 and More'. Ulf has been innovating like crazy on his app and it has inspired me to do the same (i have been slacking lately). He also runs a great google groups forum where he offers awesome tips and i have learned a bit ot two from his posts. This app is awesome. As a prior systems and network engineer i can attest to its usefulness.

Nice to see how crooks operate, soon as I started it up severs started to disappear love the copies keep up the great work and may God bless you.

Has a bunch of network testing tools that really come in handy. Focus is on function over flashiness which I appreciate.

best tool i have found. it helps me configure network for vpn over.

Does what it says on the tin. No ads. Well thought out. Very handy. Non invasive. Great app. Much thanks to the developer.

Easy to use good app. Trace route doesn't resolve DNS when you enter IP, only when you enter a url. Otherwise it works well.

this is great app you no need a cmd after this for simply testing you net conetion solving

Worked for a while, but hasn't been able to ping like trace route anything for weeks.

Great tool for troubleshooting network issues. Packed full of features.

Works well as we need :)

Free. Lightweight. Reasonable permissions. Overall a good app.

Great app. Takes some knowledge networking but well worth it

many tools, simple to use, very useful.

This is what you need right here. Research every IP, network, device,DNS you can think of. It breaks it all down for you in a very practical and easy to use interface. Don't deny yourself. Try it yourself. Finally, I have my set of keys to the kingdom.

Great app to analyse and check your network connections

Thanks for the great application. Neat implementation.

Great app, thanks for keeping it free to use. 😊

The gold standard of network utilities on Android

Great app and provides fully detailed information

Very useful tool for one's network arsenal!

Super clean, full featured, excellent. A+++

Great for sys admins!

what else can you do

i like it.

Great toolkit!


Need a Ping tool, or DNS checker or Dig or everything that you need to check whatever you need. This app is my first option when I'm away from my PC... Its a heavy duty tool with many options to use. Useful for Hosting, DNS, connectivity, port scanning... Do you see what I mean!!

Very useful and handy application. Glad that I can use it. Thanks for your work! God bless you.



Отличная программа, спасибо

Still the best app for running basic netowrk diagnostics on Android


Nice apps 👍

very good

Great app






This is a good app from a good developer. However it forces RUN AT STARTUP. Also it should allow true app exit. Net Sentry should be an optional feature. It is not a feature i use. I consider it bad practice when apps force run at startup especially for optional features that may not be used. It seems that you could better manage this situation --- like only run at startup if net sentry is enabled ... and advise user on implications of enabling Net Sentry.

all ok

Why do you remove the "show options" feature??????

useful app


good job!

Does what I need it to do and does it well

If you need any network analysis tool this app has it. GREAT !!!

Excellent App


requires following permissions on your android device.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

change network connectivity
Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.
