Hi!
  I have a C script using ping to check if an ip address is alive... i'm using this code:

  int result;
  result = system("ping -c 2 ipaddresshere");

but i can't get the correct value of result...

can you give me another way of making a C script so that it will view to me if an ip is alive through an html?

Using some kind of Unix?
I'm using this with Linux:

int result;
result = system( "ping -c 2 ipaddress | grep -e '100% packet loss'" );

If ping is successful, result will be 256.
If all 2 ping packets get lost, the result is 0.
