Ping in LabVIEW

Hello,

I'm looking for a LabVIEW implementation of the ping command. This should
be done with the ICMP echo request, not the plain ping.exe

Tnx,
Frank Lubbers

This is not quite an answer to your question, it more of a comment. I don't know of any example that implements PING from scratch but i would think that would be imeplemented using the low level TCP/IP calls in labview.
The only thing you would need to know is the low level details of ping and how the ICMP echo request/reply is used to figure out

Sorry, but I think that ICMP is not possible with low-level TCP/IP calls
in LabVIEW. The reason is that ICMP needs to construct IP packets in a
little bit different and more low-level way, than LabVIEW TCP/IP calls
does. Most likely ICMP protocol .dll's should be used instead.
If it's really possible to use LV TCP/IP calls directly, don't hesitate
to let me know.
