    ping tool

    I need to execute ping operation on Nokia 7650. I cannot find any ready tool to download, nor I'm able to implement such a service myself. Are there someone of you who can help me?
    A lot of thanks,

    Not in Java

    From the jGuru FAQ:

    How do I use Java to ping a host?

    Ping uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) described in RFC 792 (see http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc792.html). The standard Java networking libraries do not support ICMP. Without using native code or an external program, your Java programs cannot ping anybody.

    That answer applies to any version of Java. You'll have to write a native Symbian application to implement ping.
