   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Address: {0}", reply->Address->ToString() );
      Console::WriteLine( "RoundTrip time: {0}", reply->RoundtripTime );
      Console::WriteLine( "Time to live: {0}", reply->Options->Ttl );
      Console::WriteLine( "Don't fragment: {0}", reply->Options->DontFragment );
      Console::WriteLine( "Buffer size: {0}", reply->Buffer->Length );
   }
   else
   {
      Console::WriteLine( reply->Status );
   }
}


public static void SimplePing ()
{
    Ping pingSender = new Ping ();
    PingReply reply = pingSender.Send ("www.contoso.com");

    if (reply.Status == IPStatus.Success)
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("Address: {0}", reply.Address.ToString ());
        Console.WriteLine ("RoundTrip time: {0}", reply.RoundtripTime);

        Console.WriteLine ("Buffer size: {0}", reply.Buffer.Length);
    }
