Actually that's not correct for several reasons, the destination may not respond 
to ping and unless they are connected by a single cable some network device 
between them may drop ICMP.

I would suggest using tcpdump to capture the packets, save in a file, and then 
examine with either tcpdump (should be enough) or wireshark (and probably you 
want the GUI for that as well).
