[REBOL] Re: Ping?

From: greg_piney:mcgraw-hill at: 9-Feb-2001 14:42

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? Cheers -Larry
