Hi boo_radley
That's an excellent question. I thought getting the header would simulate the action we want our users to be able to do: accessing the internet using a browser.

However, now that you mention it, maybe just being able to ping a site would be okay, as long as we were pinging a URL and not an IP address. Why? Because our service provider often has problems with their DNS servers, too. Thanks for the input.
