ping component


This product has been discontinued.

The HexIcmp ActiveX component provides a complete interface to Microsoft's ICMP DLL and offers much more flexibility than a typical Ping component.

  • Write advanced Ping and Traceroute utilities
  • Create Internet "weather" applications
  • Develop other Internet diagnostic and measurement tools, such as bandwidth estimation or MTU discovery

Like all HexGadget components, HexIcmp is designed for reliable, server-grade operation and easy, flexible programming.


  • Flexible design lets you use this single component for Ping, Traceroute, and other applications
  • Fine-grained control. Set the size, TTL, and fragmentation option of outgoing packets. Get the round-trip time, TTL, and remote IP address from incoming packets.
  • Compatible with any ActiveX client, including ASP, Visual Basic, Visual C++, Delphi, and others
  • Dual interfaces for easy late binding or efficient early binding
  • Reliable, efficient operation. Developed in Visual C++ using ATL.
  • No external dependencies


  • Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, or later
  • TCP/IP networking installed
