This is a demonstration on how to use the SimplePing function described in this article.

There is not much to it, but it shows how to send an ICMP echo request (ping) to a remote IP address, and determine if the host is responding. Based on the return from the SimplePing function, the appropriate message box is displayed on screen.




Special Instructions

None - simply extract the zip file to a directory, and double click the .vbp file to view the project in the VB6 IDE


This code uses:

  • inet_addr from the wsock32.dll library
  • GetRTTAndHopCount from the iphlpapi.dll library
