I'm using FreeBSD 4.10, and I'm trying to ping a computer using the following command as a normal user, but I receive an error message.

$ ping -s 64 -c 10
ping: -s flag: Operation not permitted

If I use the same command as root, no error message is given. Is there any option I could setup in order to overcome this error???

You can setup sudo (/usr/ports/security/sudo) to run any programs you wish as root.
