It's important that all tests pass on all platforms. In a few cases
you'll see code in tests where it checks os.name and if the test is not
applicable then it just passes. It's okay if you do the same for this
test. Also as I said in one of the original replies, this one isn't
really a bug, it's just about having InetAddress.isReachable work
similar to the ping command on the platform for this case.
