what is the best way to see if a web page is up. I am talking to many web devices and some have an old IP address and but i dont know that until i try to open the page.
Right now I wait for timeout (I reduced the timeout period to 15 secs) But I am looking at 100's of devices and dont want to wait that much time. I can ping the device and i thought of doing that before opening web page.
is there a better way?
