PONG Test with a Canonical Name


Do a PONG live test to see if you can PONG <CNAME> for a server... This should keep the connection alive, and not kill it, but it needs to be tested...and if it fails, then we need to grab the responded hostname and use that for all server replies for activity.

Using the CNAME record will work, but the best way would be to take the name from the PING sent to the client "PING :<server>" Parse for the server name and PONG that, we have a useful pong.
