[xymon at xxxxxxxx ~]$ fping yyyyyyyy
fping: can't create raw socket (must run as root?) : Operation not permitted
[xymon at xxxxxxxx ~]$ ls -lh /usr/local/sbin/fping
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 87K Jul 24 12:28 /usr/local/sbin/fping

What should I do to correct this (best solution)?

Found this, but not sure it applies to xymon:

chown root:zzzzzzzz /usr/sbin/fping

chmod 710 /usr/sbin/fping

chmod ug+s /usr/sbin/fping
