public static void ShowTimestampData()
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV4Statistics statistics = properties.GetIcmpV4Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine("  Timestamp Requests .................. Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
        statistics.TimestampRequestsSent, statistics.TimestampRequestsReceived);    
    Console.WriteLine("  Timestamp Replies ................... Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
