Thanks for the response, but since Perl can't use ICMP without being logged-in as the root user and it won't work properly with other protocols, which CGI language can we use to ping our own server periodically where security is an issue? Or is it possible to code our own ICMP functions in REBOL or Perl, and if so, how (bearing in mind that I am an amateur REBOL programmer but the Network Administrator here is fluent in Perl)?
