connected? returns true if Windows believes that you have an outside connection (i.e. a connection to a network which accepts packets for the Internet ). It is impossible to tell from an application whether a real, physical connection to the Internet exists. This means that if you are on a LAN, connected to a router then REBOL cannot tell if the router itself is connected. connected? will return true whenever the interface is "up" and the router is listed as a default gateway. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
