Same question and answer is here:

I recommend to use ping solution before you want to connect. This saves me a lot.

If ping to remote server is ok in specified timeout - then connection will be fast. (even is ib server is down on specified address)

No, not in Delphi itself but you can create custom unit with code form about.com...
There are third part components but this can be faster...
