[smokeping-users] TCPPing probe doesn't generate data

Here's what I get from running smokeping --debug

TCPPing: forks 5, timeout for each target 76
TCPPing: Executing /usr/bin/tcpping -C -x 5 80
TCPPing: Executing /usr/bin/tcpping -C -x 5 internode.on.net 80
TCPPing: got
TCPPing: internode.on.net: got


Calling RRDs::update(/var/lib/smokeping/TEST/tcpping-ip-test.rrd 
--template uptime:loss:median:ping1:ping2:ping3:ping4:ping5 
Calling RRDs::update(/var/lib/smokeping/TEST/tcpping-test.rrd --template 
uptime:loss:median:ping1:ping2:ping3:ping4:ping5 1213505540:U:5:U:U:U:U:U:U)

My graphs are all just showing 100% packet loss.

If I execute the same command as smokeping is doing, then I seem to get 
proper results so I'm really not sure what the problem is?

david at david-desktop:~$ /usr/bin/tcpping -C -x 5 80
 25.130 23.576 23.224 24.626 21.697

david at david-desktop:~$ /usr/bin/tcpping -C -x 5 internode.on.net 80
 24.153 24.062 21.473 24.742 26.168

If anybody can offer any help/suggestions, then I would REALLY 
appreciate it!
