Interesting. I would, however, seriously consider removing the dependency on the external ping command and use Net::Ping. I think it would be safer, likely faster, and takes care of ping's root requirement on some platforms.

Try liberating the appropriate parts of the ping script from PPT.

You need to ensure you have a current version of Net::Ping, so you can choose your ping type (TCP, UDP, or ICMP).
