>Okay, thanks Tom, Gabrielle, Sunanda, Petr. I finally understand that ping and traceroute are ICMP animals (sometimes with UDP added), and icmp doesn't specify ports. Per my research of the list archives, rt's not interested in rebol being used on a net for diagnostics, or at least not with ICMP and unix root rights. Meanwhile, I'll have to continue to generate (rebol-readable) report files with my windows icmp and dos kludges, or do a port-open or other kludge on other hosts. I'll probably eventually have to cross firewalls and overcome nat somehow, too >
Or just buy /Pro version with shell and library support and a) call external tool to handle it for you or b) try to link to some library, which will do it for you ... -pekr-
