I have an application that needs access to an Internet website, which I need to distribute. I need to put together a tool to test that Internet access is permissible, and that a firewall is not blocking access.
Can I do this using ping? I want to use VB6 for the tool
If yes, how do I know if the ping was successful, i.e access was allowed / disallowed?
If no, what other method can I use?
This must be able to run on Windows 2000, XP & Vista
