What does WordPress ping require to work? (2 posts)

    I have a weird question, and hopefully someone can help me: Does the ping function of WordPress (Which I assume uses the XMLRPC lib in WordPress) require any special server side PHP libs, or special compile options?

    The reason I ask is I use Nearly Free Speech and for some reason, even though the option is set, and pingomatic is in the box of sites to ping, it apparently doesn't ping. The reason I say that it apparently doesn't ping is when I post a topic, and leave it alone, none of the usual bots come by, but when I manually ping through pingomatic.com the bots start flooding in. Any suggestions?

    Check if fopen() enabled, and if your host is blocking the outbound on port 80.
