Whenever I ping an address through PHP (the exec command) and when it's hte second time or more since I've done the same command, I get something like this. Code: round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 3.917/3.917/3.917/0.000 ms Which is NOT what I want. Any suggestions? or comments. There must be something I'm missing. EDIT: Ooh! It's not just giving me the above line, but instead exec is giving back just the last line. Code: 3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 79.492/80.872/82.678/1.335 ms Any idea on how to stop this?
