I always find this kind of interesting
[Via [MSDN Blogs](http://blogs.msdn.com/feroze_daud/archive/2005/10/20/483088.aspx)]I always have wanted to create a ping client in .Net but never got around to it. There was no particular reason why I wanted to create a ping client, I just always thought it would be quite cool. Anyway, watch out on [Feroze Daud's WebLog](http://blogs.msdn.com/feroze_daud/default.aspx).
After a long hiatus, I am back to posing to my blog. I am going to start out with a series on Socket programming.
In this series, I will show you how to implement a simple Ping client using classes from the [System.Net.Sockets ](http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemnetsockets.asp) namespace. It should be an exciting journey.
For starters, you can familiarize yourself with the RFC for ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) which is the protocol used by the PING client. The RFC for that is here: ([http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0792.txt](http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0792.txt)).
Until next time,
