in thread Net::Ping broken on Solaris?

That one-liner is a... condensation of mine of a full-fledged script, that doesn't work either. So -e isn't the culprit, definitely.

Thanks anyway for trying to help


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    I've got some boxes. What version, patch-level, hardware, etc.?

    I feel like helping in my own sloth-type way if you don't mind.

    Ask the sysadmins? Maybe someone got 'slick' and replaced ping or some other bin/lib w/their own (devious) routines. I doubt it but it happened to me once or twice in a sub-par shop.
