You may want to try.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Net::Ping; $| = 1; my @hosts = <DATA>; my @proto = ("tcp", "udp", "icmp", "stream", "syn"); foreach my $pro ( @proto ) { print "\nProtocol $pro \n"; my $p = Net::Ping->new($pro); foreach my $host( @hosts ) { chomp($host); # Specify source interface of pings print "$host is "; print "NOT " unless $p->ping($host, 2); print "reachable.\n"; } $p->close(); } exit; __DATA__

    ll it seems my script works like should when I on my local network. Where I run into problems is when I am on my vpn. If I run the script while connected to the VPN it cannot ping the host. If I place the script on a server within the network it works fine. So now I need to find out why it is not pinging over the VPN because I do most of my work over it.

    <Disregard my ramblings above>

    I found the issue to the above problem, my "dev" box is a VM, VMware is preforming NAT to the VMs on my laptop. Then on top of that OpenVPN is performing NAT again which seems to be causing problems. If I connect OpenVPN directly to the VM the ping test using my script works like it should.
