Name: PingTheRouter() - 2 Overloads
Parameters.1: intPortNumber (integer)
Parameters.2: strSendToIP (string), intPortNumber (integer)
Description: If pinging an UltraPort Router running on the same computer use Parameters.1, to ping a remote computer (or a specific IP address on the same computer) use Parameters.2.
NOTES: The 'PingTheRouter' feature is a built-in feature of the UltraPort Routers. You can call this method whenever you like (within reason, don't put it into an endless loop as that would be the equivalent of a 'Denial of Service' attack against the router) to determine if the UltraPort Router is up and running. IMPORTANT: This is NOT the same as issuing a PING command from the Command Prompt. This method uses a similar call/response functionality and actually transmits a short burst of data to the router profile and waits for the appropriate response. This roundtrip is usually very fast (like a Ping command from a command prompt) but you can use the WaitingForResponse event to 'break' this methods operation (as might be necessary if a form is closing OR a service is stopping, etc).
