Python | Subnet Ping

This script will ping and display status of all hosts in a subnet we provide.

import subprocess
import ipaddress
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE
subnet = input("Please enter the network: ")
network = ipaddress.ip_network(subnet)
for i in network.hosts():
    i=str(i)
    toping = subprocess.Popen(['ping', '-c', '3', i], stdout=PIPE)
    output = toping.communicate()[0]
    hostalive = toping.returncode
    if hostalive == 0:
        print(i,'is ' + '\033[92m' + 'reachable' + '\033[0m')
    else:
        print(i,'is ' + '\033[91m' + 'unreachable' + '\033[0m')

That's what the script works:

drm@STENGE % python3 ping-subnet.py
Please enter the network: 192.168.0.0/29
192.168.0.1 is reachable
192.168.0.2 is unreachable
192.168.0.3 is reachable
192.168.0.4 is reachable
192.168.0.5 is reachable
192.168.0.6 is reachable
drm@STENGE %
