You don't say what operating system you are running, but I'll share what was required of me on Solaris:
   chmod u+s /opt/csw/sbin/fping*

which has resulted in:
   -rwsr-xr-x   1 root     bin          36K Mar 11  2014 fping

I think I lifted this from:

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
