Ping Timeout

3 posts in this topic

Hey in the beta version the "ping" command has an optional 'timeout' paramater but for me it doesn't seem to work. For example if i go-

Ping (www.sdfsdf4567nw436g.comG33Ta,5)

It takes much longer than 5ms to timeout (more like 1500 or so)...does this happen to anyone else?

Hi,

not to me. I think that 5 ms is too short. It will always take more than 5 ms doing a ping, I suppose.

Test:

$begin = TimerInit()
$var = Ping("www1.AutoItScript.com", 250)
Dim $error = @error
$dif = TimerDiff($begin)
If $var Then
    MsgBox(0, "Status", "Online, roundtrip was:" & $var)
Else
    Select
        Case $error = 1
            MsgBox(0, "Status", "An error occured with number: " & $error & " " & "Host is offline")
        Case $error = 2  
            MsgBox(0, "Status", "An error occured with number: " & $error & " " & "Host is unreachable")
        Case $error = 3  
            MsgBox(0, "Status", "An error occured with number: " & $error & " " & "Bad destination")
        Case $error = 4 
            MsgBox(0, "Status", "An error occured with number: " & $error & " " & "Other errors")
    EndSelect
EndIf
MsgBox(0, "Time Difference", Round($dif) & " ms")

Edit: Changed the script

So long,

Well not really. This particular instance involves LAN pinging. When i go to the command prompt and ping something on the local network it usually responds with a time<1ms reply. Even if i increase it to somthing like 50 it still takes about 1.5 seconds for the autoit command to finish...
