So in my application i am using this IdIcmpClient to ping a host and then
plot the results of the ping onto a PerformanceGraph.
Basically 2 things are going wrong, first off is when i ping an invalid host
the program will crash and hang while pinging. I am guessing it hangs and
my app freezes because i have not created a separate thread but i have not
tested this. The second problem is that it will raise an exception class
EIdSockError message with 'Socket Error # 11004'. I dont know what i am
doing wrong, but i need some way of verrifying whether or not the IP address
/ Hostname that the user has entered is correct before, either that or
figure out how to catch this error and ignore it.
