The following example displays the value of this property.

void ShowIcmpV4EchoData()
   IPGlobalProperties ^ properties = IPGlobalProperties::GetIPGlobalProperties();
   IcmpV4Statistics ^ statistics = properties->GetIcmpV4Statistics();
   Console::WriteLine( "  Echo Requests ....................... Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}", 
      statistics->EchoRequestsReceived );
   Console::WriteLine( "  Echo Replies ........................ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
