Hi Rob,

Do you really think this extra check is required ?

if (pEchoReply->Status == IP_SUCCESS
+ && (int)pEchoReply->RoundTripTime <= timeout) I did not found any 
doc(MSDN) which explains this. I think in case of IP_SUCCESS 
"RoundTripTime" is always less than timeout. I think similar changes is 
required in Inet6Address.c as well ? Thanks, Vyom

This change checks that both the call and the ping were successful. In addition to that it takes a number of common failure causes into account before deciding to throw an exception.
