Hello, I made not very pleasant discovery...

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
$p1=ping("9.17.137.11")
consolewrite("ping() result:"&$p1&" @error:"&@error&@crlf)
$p2=runwait('cmd.exe /c ping 9.17.137.11 -n 2')
consolewrite("cmd.exe ping result: "&$p2&" (0 means success)"&@CRLF)

The output is:

ping() result:0 @error:2

Pinging 9.17.137.11 with 32 bytes of data:

Ping statistics for 9.17.137.11:
    Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 176ms, Maximum = 219ms, Average = 197ms
cmd.exe ping result: 0 (0 means success)

Why can't ping() ping it but cmd ping can? @error 2 means Host is unreachable. I need this in a virtual box virtual machine running on Linux VPNed to my work. I haven't tried it at work yet if it works with direct connection...

you need to give your line with runwait a very good look
