    Execute ICMP Ping in Flex 3

    RobStacy Level 1

      I need to write a Flex application that will run in a browser and ping a specified server every minute to measure latency and packet loss.  If the latency gets too high, the application will display a red icon.  How can I execute an ICMP ping to a specified server within a Flex application?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Rob

          Will flash.system.shell work from within the browser?  All I want to do is test the round trip time from my swf back to the server.  I am guessing I could do this by executing a service call and measuring round trip time myself but then I would not be able to measure packet loss.
