Subject: [Boost-users] ICMP Ping example running problem
From: shunguang (shunguang_at_[hidden])

Hi all,

When i run *ping.cpp * at .\boost_1_53_0\doc\html\boost_asio\example\icmp,
it comes with the error message: "Exception: open: An attempt was made to
access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions".

Debug shows that it comes from calling ",* socket_ (io_service , icmp::v4()
)*" in the constructor.

Google says the running computer must have administrator right, i do have
it. i also checked my firewall settings, it looks fine to me also. Does
anyone can give a help?
