I was trying fping 2.4b2 and it required automake. I am running RH9 on this
box. I got the automake and the autoconf but it kept saying there was
./missing in a file.
I then tried fping 2.3b1 and it installed fine. It gave me ping times about
50% of what they were supposed to be, this is better than 10%.
Then i tried fping 2.4b2_to and that installed fine. Now my ping times
seem to be correct. I have been using this configuration for 5 days and without a hitch. I have stopped and started it many times to see if it is acurate all the time and it is. I even rebooted the server a couple of times just to make sure all the startup scripts worked etc... all is good.
Thanks for all your help.
