>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 ...
