Ping Parameter

Is it possible to add start parameters for the ping.nlm?
The TID 10053767 describes that it is possible to add the paramter -t to
send a ping packet every XX seconds.
I've tried this option in NetWare 6.5 SP5, but it doesn't work.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

The switches do indeed work, but they MUST go before the IP address if
you're using one. So

ping -t 10 -s 10000 192.168.1.1 will work as per the TID

ping 192.168.1.1 -t 10 -s 10000 will not.
