FIcmp::IcmpEcho do not work Android

I want to ping to AWS endpoint, and measure response time.

So I put on this code, editor & windows application is working, but android is not working.

Always android responsed “TimeOut”.

This is my testing mobile information.

“Galaxy note 8(Android 7.1.1)”.


  • How to use “FIcmp::IcmpEcho” for android? and iOS?
  • Is there any ping method more simply except “FIcmp::IcmpEcho”?

I put it for other method “FUDPPing::UDPEcho”, but it does’nt work too.


void UAWSManager::GetLatency()
    PingReult.BindUObject(this, &UAWSManager::OnPingReply);
    //FUDPPing::UDPEcho(Endpoint, 20.0f, PingReult);
    FIcmp::IcmpEcho(Endpoint, 20.0f, PingReult);

void UAWSManager::OnPingReply(FIcmpEchoResult Result)
    switch (Result.Status)
    case EIcmpResponseStatus::Success: // windows come here
    case EIcmpResponseStatus::Timeout: // android come here

thanks for your code, it’s help a lot. I’m trying to use it in static functions but without success.

Have same issue, I get stuff like:

On Android, socket(AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, IPPROTO_ICMP) in IcmpPosix.cpp, will not receive IP header, so the “PacketHeader = reinterpret_cast<struct icmp*>(ResultBuffer + IpHeaderSize);” just got the wrong offset.

I’ve made a pull request to fix IcmpEcho on Android, and add support for iOS.
