' * Comments         :
' *  Ping is a tool that helps to verify IP-level connectivity.
' *  When troubleshooting, the ping command is used to send an ICMP echo request
' *  to a target host name or IP address. Use ping whenever you need
' *  to verify that a host computer can connect to the TCP/IP network and
' *  network resources. You can also use the ping utility to isolate
' * network hardware problems and incompatible configurations.
' *
' * Sample of use :
' *
' * Dim ECHO As ICMP_ECHO_REPLY
' * Dim pos As Integer
' *
' * 'ping an ip address, passing the
' * 'address and the ECHO structure
' * Call Ping("209.68.48.120", ECHO)
' *
' * 'display the results from the ECHO structure
' * Text1(0) = GetStatusCode(ECHO.status)
' * Text1(1) = ECHO.Address
' * Text1(2) = ECHO.RoundTripTime & " ms"
' * Text1(3) = ECHO.DataSize & " bytes"
' *
' * If Left$(ECHO.Data, 1) <> Chr$(0) Then
' *     pos = InStr(ECHO.Data, Chr$(0))
' *     Text1(4) = Left$(ECHO.Data, pos - 1)
' * End If

I think it should be quite the same. I will take a deeper look.
Maybe there is a big in my code under certains circumstances.
