It won't work properly in Wine without playing with permissions. Regular users can not open raw sockets on Linux (and most other *NIXes). And ping requires that, since it's uses ICMP protocol.

But even if you get it to work, I still won't trust it. Wine will be adding some latency here. You talking about milliseconds here, it will be noticeable.
