conn

quick and dirty server availability check

basically just a way too complex wrapper for nmap and fping
the pre-rewrite version is available as conn.sh.old and is no longer maintained

features:

  • multi-input detection (not needed anymore since the rewrite)
  • ipv4 input detection (not needed anymore since the rewrite)
  • ipv6 input detection (not needed anymore since the rewrite)
  • waiting for availability
  • send notification on availability
  • updater built in

usage

Usage: conn [IP(s)/hostname(s)]
Options:
-h / --help show help page (this)
-6 / --force-ipv6 force ipv6 portscanning (also forces portscanning)
-4 / --force-ipv4 force ipv4 portscanning (also forces portscanning)
-y / --yes portscan without asking
-n / --no dont portscan
-w / --wait wait for active connection
-u / --update update the script
-f / --fast disable os check
-s / --simple simplify output

installation

  1. download the script:
wget https://git.byreqz.de/byreqz/conn/raw/branch/main/conn.sh
  1. run it with
    bash conn.sh or
    chmod +x conn.sh && ./conn.sh
  2. optionally alias it
    alias conn="~/conn.sh"

sample output

./conn.sh nils.lol
