SendPing timeout being ignored? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using SendPing to ping clients on my LAN and manual pinging shows them responding in 4-6ms.  I've tried setting SendPing's timeout to 10ms and the active clients respond fine but as soon as it hits an IP address that doesn't exist, it takes hundreds of ms instead of 10ms?  I assumed the timeout meant the command would return in that time with a result but does it mean instead that it will set the results in 10ms but not actually issue them to you until the ping completes?

  • How dumb I am - SendPing was the name of my Ping variable so nobody was going to understand that question!  Anyway, I've put it in a separate thread so I no longer care how long it takes :).
