win7 "ping site" problem


Recommended Posts



I'm having troubles with the PING SITE command.


I'm using Windows 7, and am behind a router... and normally consider myself an "advanced" pc user.


The PING SITE command is ALWAYS returning "Unknown Host" to the selected string variable. Internet works fine. From command prompt, the "ping" command works fine.


The same macro, run from an XP machine at my work, works fine.


I tried disabling the Windows 7 - Windows Firewall, and that didn't help either.


Any ideas?
