Re: ping "Operation not permitted" on Windows 7

Using Windows 7 Professional, cygwin, mintty,and bash. All are up to date.
I am getting this:
     $ type ping
     ping is hashed (/usr/bin/ping)
     $ ping
     ping: socket: Operation not permitted

If I launch mintty "Run as administrator" from Windows, then no such
problem occurs.

I have tried re-installing the "ping" package via cygwin setup.exe. No

Output from "cygcheck -s -v -r" attached. Any suggestions?

Cygwin's ping has always required administrative privileges to work. If this is not acceptable, the current work-around is to use the Windows version of ping.
