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 Part II: Adventures in Socket programming using System.Net

The second part of the C# Ping Tutorial is up. At the moment it doesn't have much in the way of solid implementation, but this is a series of posts so expect more. It is quite a good post because he talks about what Ping packets look like and where they are on the communications stack.

Anyway to quote the post.
Let us start out by looking at requirements of the Ping client. Basically, the task of the tool is to find out if a specified server is alive, and on the network. The way it achieves this is by sending an echo packet to the server. The server responds with an echo response. If the server responds within a certain time interval, then we can assume that there is network connectivity from the client to the server. If it doesnt respond, then it could indicate a variety of things that could be wrong
