icmp open socket error using ping

I have used Net Ping quite a while. Recently, some say with version 4.3 of the system software, I now get the error message "icmp open socket: Operation not permitted."

How do I fix this problem? I've tried a number of ping utilities, none work. Same error, no matter what address I use.

6ixty1,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your question. Unfortunately Net Ping is a third party application, you will need to reach out to the developer for assistance with errors in the application. In the Play Store, you can find an option to Email Developer listed under the Additional Information for the app.
