But, I noticed that sometimes, I get this error Test-Connection : Testing connection to computer '18.104.22.168' failed: Error due to lack of resources This is my syntax: Test-Connection 22.214.171.124 -Count 1 -Quiet I know this is not a real IP address, so it should be coming as "False", but I'm getting the message. Thanks, Tony June 21, 2018 at 6:36 pm #102953 Don JonesKeymaster Not precise, but some useful workarounds: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41267553/powershell-test-connection-failed-due-to-lack-of-resources It might also be useful to bypass the Test-Connection wrapper and just use the Win32_PingStatus class directly. You'd query that from your local computer and have it try to ping whatever address, and then interpret the status codes yourself.
