Consider the following scenario:
In this scenario, the IcmpSendEcho function does not return a response that indicates a time-out status immediately at the time when the request times out.
Note You can reproduce this problem by using the ping.exe tool on your device. You may notice that the Timeout parameter (-w) for the ping command does not work as expected.
This problem occurs because the system does not start a timer for the Timeout parameter when an ICMP echo request packet is sent.
