Before you begin:
The Ping class presents several API functions -- IcmpCreateFile, IcmpCloseHandle, IcmpSendEcho and others -- that used to send an ICMP Echo request and get a reply (RTT, round-trip time).

This is interesting, the same set of ICMP functions may exist in two libraries, ICMP.DLL and IPHLPAPI.DLL, on WinXP/2K computer.

    My comment:
    The ICMP, Internet Control Message Protocol, an extension to the Internet Protocol that is generally used by PING utilities. This protocol is handy for generation of error messages, test packets, and informational messages related to IP.

    It is different from TCP and UDP protocols by both the purpose and implementation. RFC792 defines the ICMP.

    I think there is a small error in the ToString() method.

    For the first line of the method, rather than:

    IF .errorcode=0

    I think it should be:

    IF this.errorcode=0
