I am not sure if I misunderstood your problem.
Since you mentioned about javascript, I guess that you are
interested of the "client-side" solution.
My suggestion is to use Macromedia Flash instead of javascript.
In Flash5, you can use "XML" object  to retrieve data from an URL.
It also tells you the success or failure of that connection.
Further more, you can use FSCommand to pass data from flash movie 
out to javascript.
But this flash movie should be downloaded from the same server with 
the URL you want to ping  "for sake of security".
Hope it helps.
