It would be nice to have a mechanism to check on the availability
of a server (Rebol Server) from an application Without having
to wait 30+ seconds for a timeout.

I often use ping on my LAN to check for correct TCP operation when
installing a new machine or when there seems to be a TCP configuration
problem with a machine. Is there a way to make this check using REBOL's TCP
capabilities without running a REBOL server script on the target amchine?
