For the second time, I'm outsourcing my VOIP hosting to a provider, whom I have to trust their sales pitch of 45 minutes down per 365 days. Is there an automated way I can test their server(s) without having to make a telephone call every couple hours & log it? I'm thinking something like a 'ping' would be nice, that I could generate from a Linux script. Any ideas?
I'll be depending on them for my business, so I don't want to get blindsided by clients who say they can't reach me.
