Thanks for replies. But I have a Java API which connect to a remote
Erlang node through a VPN. I created a Erlang node in Java API
OtpNode node = new OtpNode("gurka"); (Erlang documentation
and I want to get the state of the VPN connection quickly.
If the VPN connection is present
node.ping("remote",2000) (Erlang documentation - jinterface)
will give response (true) quickly. If connection is down it should
give response (false) within 2 seconds. But the problem is it hangs
around 1 minute to give response. But I need to know the state of the
connection within few seconds from a java node. Now I think you all
understand my question.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
