PingPlotter Beta Testing
Want to shape the future of PingPlotter? Interested in trying out awesome new tools before they go live? Beta builds give you a chance to experience the shiniest, newest features while helping us create the best PingPlotter possible.
How it Works
PingPlotter beta features are exclusive to active subscribers and perpetual license-holders with active maintenance. To participate, follow these steps:
- Contact our Beta Team to request an invitation to the latest beta
- Log into your account page and download the beta version of PingPlotter
- Once the beta build is installed, launch PingPlotter. Enter your account credentials when prompted
That's it! You're now set to test your new traceroute superpowers!
New Web Interface
Control PingPlotter from your favorite (or possibly second-favorite) browser. You can access PingPlotter locally or remotely, allowing you to conduct traces, change settings, and view results from practically anywhere.
The new web interface can be accessed the same way as the current interface. View the PingPlotter Manual to learn more about how to set up the web interface.
HTTPS support is currently on the project roadmap. Be sure to check our latest beta release notes below for updates.
