Whenever I use ping it returns the message socket: Operation not

Yep. Known issue. Actually, the only reason Cygwin still has its own ping is
some people prefer it over the Windows version (and the complaints against
it have been low volume). Anyway, this is the long way of saying "That's the
way it works and it's unlikely to change".
