Installation

npm i pingus

If an error occurs during installation, it may be due to the installation failure of the following packages.

It can be fixed by installing the GCC compiler.

  • In Ubuntu:

    sudo apt-get install -y build-essential
  • In Windows:

    Install Visual Studio including the Desktop development with C++ workload.

Simple Example

// TCP Ping to localhost:22
import pingus from 'pingus'; // ESM, Typescript
const pingus = require('pingus'); // CJS

pingus.tcp({ host: 'localhost', port: 22 }).then(console.log);
// Result
{
  type: 'ping/tcp',
  status: 'open',
  host: 'localhost',
  ip: IP { label: '127.0.0.1' },
  ips: [ IP { label: '127.0.0.1' } ],
  time: 2,
  port: 22,
  name: 'ssh',
  banner: 'SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_8.9p1 Ubuntu-3'
}

API

Class: pingus.Ping

pingus.Ping is EventEmitter with the following events:

Event: 'ready'

Emitted when ready (Resolve DNS, Filter Bogon IP) to send ping after call ping.send().

import pingus from 'pingus';

const ping = new pingus.PingTCP({
  host: 'example.com',
});
ping.on('result', (result) => {
  console.log('ping\ttarget:\t', result.host);
  console.log('\tips:\t', result.ips);
});
ping.send();
Result (Console Output)
ping    target: example.com
        ips: [ '93.184.216.34', '2606:2800:220:1:248:1893:25c8:1946' ]

Event: 'result'

Result of ping data.

import pingus from 'pingus';

const ping = new pingus.PingTCP({
  host: 'example.com',
});
ping.on('result', (result) => {
