Help! Script to Scan Remote IP UDP....

Recommended Posts

Guest ryen
Hello, Is it possible for a php script to check a remote IPS UDP port and report back if theirs activity? For example if there is activity have it return "Server is UP" and if no activity "Server is Down" Im trying to see if my game server is running and its the only program to use a certain udp port.

READ My reply for more info (2 down).

Thanks

Hey, That will tell if the Server machine isdown but what if the game server exe  program crashes? It wont tell me that. I had this script :

<?PHP 
function serverstatus($host, $port) { 
  $sock = @fsockopen($host, $port, &$num, &$error, 2); 
  if ($sock) { 
      if (getservbyport($port,"udp")!=null) { 
          $serv = getservbyport($port,"udp"); 
      } else { 
          $serv = "Unknown"; 
      } 
      echo "<center>Server : <span style='color:green'>Online</span></center>"; 
      fclose($sock); 
      unset($sock); 
  }else{ 
      echo "<center>Server : <span style='color:red'>Offline</span></center>"; 
      unset($sock); 
  } 


//Ports To Scan , insert your info here!
serverstatus("udp//127.0.0.1", 44453); 

//
?>

But UDP wont report OFFLINE. I read that Unlike TCP, UDP is a connectionless protocol.

Due to the nature of UDP, if you send a packet and don't get a response it automatically assumes the port is open. That's why you always get the online status.


Anyway around that?
