Hi everyone,

I developed a program under Linux that calls "tcpping". Basically tcpping works like ping, but it sends out a TCP packet to a destination host, and reads the responding packet, different from ping's ICMP ECHO packet.

Now I want to compile an "exe" executable under Windows, but I cannot find a tool similar to "tcpping". Does anybody know if there is such a tool, or any ideas on how to easily solve this issue?

Many thanks!
