Hi All,

I am a newbie to Ruby programming.

I am trying a do a ping check on a server


irb(main):006:0> HOST='192.168.1.2'
=> "192.168.1.2'"


irb(main):007:0> Ping.pingecho(HOST)
=> false

where as I can ping the server for the host where I am running the irb.

ruby -v
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i486-linux]

gem list --local

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

hoe (2.8.0)
net-ping (1.3.7)
net-ssh (2.0.23)
rake (0.8.7)

Am I missing something here?

Please help

Regards,
