pinging with WScript.Shell

Hello I'm using the following script to try and ping:

<% Response.Buffer = true %>
<%
url = "www.espn.c om"

Set objWShell = CreateObject("W Script.Shell")
Set objCmd = objWShell.Exec( "ping " & url)
strPResult = objCmd.StdOut.R eadall()
set objCmd = nothing: Set objWShell = nothing

strStatus = "offline"
if InStr(strPResul t,"TTL=")>0 then strStatus = "online"

response.write url & " is " & strStatus
response.write ".<br>" & replace(strPRes ult,vbCrLf,"<br >")
%>

I am getting the following error on the objWShell.Exec( "ping " & url):

WshShell.Exec error '80070005'

Access is denied.

/test.asp, line 6
I can understand there being permssions errors if I was moving files around
in different directories but this is a straight ping. There shouldnt be any
permissions error by my thinking. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You

Tried both Win 2000 options on that site and getting the same errors at the
same locations (.Exec on the first one and .Run on the second. For your
convenience here si the two scripts I tried running (replacing the IP with
something local to me).

Set objShell = CreateObject("W Script.Shell")
Set objExecObject = objShell.Exec _
("%comspec% /c ping -n 3 -w 1000 192.168.1.1")
Do While Not objExecObject.S tdOut.AtEndOfSt ream
strText = objExecObject.S tdOut.ReadAll()
If Instr(strText, "Reply") 0 Then
Wscript.Echo "Reply received."
Else
Wscript.Echo "No reply received."
End If
Loop

--------------------------------------------

Set objFSO = CreateObject("S cripting.FileSy stemObject")
Set objShell = CreateObject("W script.Shell")
objName = objFSO.GetTempN ame
objTempFile = objName
objShell.Run "cmd /c ping -n 3 -w 1000 192.168.1.1 >" & _
objTempFile, 0, True
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenText File(objTempFil e, 1)
Do While objTextFile.AtE ndOfStream <True
strText = objTextFile.Rea dLine
If Instr(strText, "Reply") 0 Then
Wscript.Echo "Reply received."
Exit Do
End If
Loop
objTextFile.Clo se
objFSO.DeleteFi le(objTempFile)

Hope this helps narrow down the problem.

Thank You

I used to be able to run the following ASP code on our corp machine (W2K Server Edition and IIS-5) and successfully send a net-msg to anyone on our intranet. Last week it stopped working... and I'm not sure what changed. (I had applied ALL the W2K update patches... but... I'm not sure if the problem started before or after that.) Did any recent W2K patches change the way createObject, wScript.shell, or "NET SEND" works?

To any who chose to provide an answer, or even any suggestions to this problem, I thank you greatly in advance. +200 pts. for any valid solutions.

I have seen some very general suggestions for alternative code to the WScript.Shell code, but nothing specific. In the two lines of code below (I think) the first line creates a text file on the hard drive. When I get to this line I get runtime error 429 "ActiveX component can't create object". I know I should not use WSH but I haven't been able to figure out an alternative. I tried looking through the VBA editor help file for "file"...
