There is one fundamental thing missing in the System.Net namespace and that's a class that can be used to ping servers. It is, however, possible to write the class yourself, using a raw Socket and the ICMP protocol.
The Org.Mentalis.Network.Icmp class defines a method that can be used to ping a specific server. It can also be easily extended to support other ICMP messages.
This class is written in C#; it can be compiled to .NET modules or libraries to be used in other .NET languages.
