    Dear All,

    Is there any way to "ping" the other system using CSocket. Becz, last few days i am searching for that i can't get anything till yet. i hope codeguru will definetly guide me. ( I can get ping status using WinSock, but i can't get using CSocket).

    With Regards,

    Thanks In Advance to all guys for ur help.

    Canonical "Ping" uses the ICMP protocol which I don't think is supported by CSocket; only TCP and UDP. I believe Winsock2 supports ICMP through raw sockets, but I don't think it can be extended (easily anyway) to the CSocket class.

    By the way, It's spelled: "Because."
