The short answer is no.

Well, sometimes things sneak into Rev when I'm not looking.

Some computers have some service you can use like a ping and some are  
ping-like.  I imagine the pinging computer might have a local service  
for doing pings.  I don't think those count.

I have blocked ping on some servers, but normally this is and should  
be on.

I'd use shell() with the ping utility on OS X and Windows.
