Hello everyone,

I'm new here and I'm wondering if someone might be able to help walk me through my problem.

I have a Windows form with a label. I want to ping a specific IP address in the network. If a response is received, I want to display some text in a label such as "Status: Connected" and if there is no reply, display "Status: Disconnected". Also, if there is a reply from the device at that IP, show image1 on the form and if there is no reply, show image2.

Thanks!

        Try
            If My.Computer.Network.Ping("192.168.0.1", 2000) = True Then
                pbVPN.Image = My.Resources.VPNOn
            Else : pbVPN.Image = My.Resources.VPNOff
            End If
