I don't know what to think but I provided a modified version of a program by Steve Ware that will try to contact a listener under CICS.

I interpreted his requirement as to send a ping to a device from CICS and receive the response (if any) back at CICS.

I don't understand why you would want to do this. Responding to a PING is a job for the TCP/IP stack at an address. Your CICS region is listening on ports assigned to it...You might find the port used by PING on the list of well-known ports, but if you listened on that port, you would have a conflict with the stack's native implementation.

Unless I'm missing something....

Any one have or know where I might get code (or format) to send and receive/respond to a standard TCP/IP PING?

I am sure that's in a book somewhere. A pointer to that book would be helpful. I am looking to put this in CICS.

(Someone found RFC 862 and 2151 but these are way too general, unless I am missing something.)
