Asking here as I cannot find any mailing list or new group for pythond.

Looking for a reason why pythond under FreeDOS does not support the 
icmp protocol.

PythonD 2.4.2r1 for DJGPP [GCC 3.3.2] on ms-dos5
>>> import socket
>>> socket.getprotobyname("icmp")
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
socket.error: protocol not found

Is this limitation in PythonD or FreeDOS?
