Subject [users@httpd] PING in scripts won't timeout. Trap problem?
Date Mon, 01 May 2006 23:38:57 GMT
A user at our site has complained that he when he tries to create a 
script (cgi or php) that uses PING, if the PING hits a node that doesn't 
respond (i.e. the node has a firewall), the PING never times out and the 
script hangs.  From the command line, PING will timeout.  Would anyone 
have any insight into this problem, and have a solution?  Thanks. - Mark
