With a few tools, you can access ping and an assortment of other commands, blocking system or no. The easiest way: on a Windows PC not affected by the blocking system, go through C:\Windows and find the file called "command.com". Copy this file to a USB flash drive or similar. When on a school PC, you can run command.com to access a traditional command prompt. Use it to run ping. Easy. If the ye olde command.com prompt isn't newfangled enough for you, there's a multitude of third-party command prompts around. Try out Console2, linked below, to start with.
