A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

RE: PING: Adventures in Socket programming using System.Net

I always find this kind of interesting


After a long hiatus, I am back to posing to my blog. I am going to start out with a series on Socket programming.


In this series, I will show you how to implement a simple Ping client using classes from the System.Net.Sockets  namespace. It should be an exciting journey.


For starters, you can familiarize yourself with the RFC for ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) which is the protocol used by the PING client. The RFC for that is here: (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0792.txt).



Until next time,


Cheers.

I always have wanted to create a ping client in .Net but never got around to it. There was no particular reason why I wanted to create a ping client, I just always thought it would be quite cool. Anyway, watch out on Feroze Daud's WebLog.
