If you understand, say "understand". If you don't understand, say "don't understand". But if you understand and say "don't understand". How do I understand that you understand? Understand!

You're in luck - support for this has been added in Java 5.0

Check out, it has a method called "isReachable" which takes a timeout; there is also an overloaded version that takes a NetworkInterface and ttl value as well.

Please don't use thread titles like "how I do this?" Please use a title which tells people what the thread is about.
