RE: Ping Part III: Adventures in Socket programming using System.Net

There has been another update to the ICMP ping tutorial. Still nothing on the wire yet, but this is all the important information such as check summing. Check it out it is a very good series so far.

Keep up the good work Feroze.

In this part, we will write a routine to calculate the checksum of the packet, and a routine to serialize the packet into a byte array. Recall from PartII that the request and reply packets have a particular encoding on the wire. We will have to write a routine that will encode the packet into a byte array, so that the array can be sent on the wire.
