Question How to check an IP address is reachable

Please Login to Remove!

I want to check whether the any given IP address is reachable. Simillar to ping, however I know that blackberry does not open up to send the ICMP packets, just wondering whether any best way to do this.

If I try to open a socket, it works fine even though the IP address is invalid

I think there used too be a SSH shell client that you could install and that will let you ping. Or Rove Mobile also does the same but its a middleware and has to be installed on both ends.
