I have done some search with google, there is an introduction says when
sending a socket bound with INADDR_ANY, it will be sent to the default
IP address (default address is the one has the lowest-numbered interface).
I guess most Unix like OS should support the ping command, I also
already tested the ping on Linux and AIX, they are working fine. I can
test zos when I get a machine.
Thanks a lot!
