If you’re using a networking application in Wine and you can’t ping, try the following:
Open a terminal and enter: sudo setcap cap_net_raw+epi /usr/bin/
From a quick google, it appears ICMP doesn’t work because to use the networking feature, Wine requires root access, something you never want to give it. Above fixed the issue for me.
Linux is brilliant for the number of networking tools it has available, but there are just some windows applications that do it better.
FREEping is one such application that is simple enough in what it does, but is effective for monitoring at certain intervals to check if devices are reachable.
the link on freeping is ko, website seems to change..
Thanks. Have updated 🙂
