    There's not really a "great" solution for this within PDQ. Personally for something like this I would turn to a Powershell script run via scheduled task somewhere that uses Test-Connection to check the up/down state of the critical host, and send-mailmessage to send the email alert. It could be a very big complex script with lots of checks, and pretty formatted email message, or it can be a couple of lines to check ping, and send a "hey, this is down" email.

    Hi Anthony,

    take a look at Axcence NetTools, it's a free tool if you register your e-mail.
    You can test it for 30 days without registration.


    It contains a NetWatch function including E-Mail Alert if lost packages are to high, ping to bad or the connection is lost.

    Beside this, the others functions inside are usefull as well:

    Trace
    Bandwidth
    Lookup
    NetCheck
    Scan host
    Scan Network
    SNMP

    Put it into autostart and maybe track the running status every hour with PDQ.
    If it is not running, start it with a script again or register the exe as a service and track the service
