Hi, I want to know how I could code in "ping" support into my program without using the dos-ping...

The problem is that you need to use raw sockets, which are not supported if you are not logged on as an administrator... On the other hand, I don't want to use the external ping-thingie because what if the program has been deleted for some reason?

Can someone give me an answer on this?


Thanks

Look for IcmpSendEcho, IcmpCreateFile in the MSDN. It works even if the user is not administrator.

These functions are part of the icmp.dll library, which also exists on Windows 98
