How can I check the availability of websites from hosted by company? Ping the server and checking if the services for IIS or Apache/Tomcat is not enough. I want to see if the sites are responsive, if I can login. My idea is to build a script using cURL to access the websites and parse for certain words. However using cURL to access a secure site () doesnt seem to work. cURL might not be the best tool! Any ideas how to check the availability of this website?
Thanks in advance, Darrell
