If you access an asset's Lansweeper webpage, you'll notice an online status indicator right below the asset name and next to the IP address. Ping statuses are also added when you hit the Ping Assets button in asset overviews. These online status indicators are based on a ping request performed from the server hosting your Lansweeper web console to the client asset. If the asset is a Windows computer, the NetBIOS name (e.g. LAN-001) is pinged; if the asset is not a Windows computer, the IP address is pinged.
