    I need check Ip if there is connection, before calling services

    hi @vivica there is a plugin \component called Xam.Plugin.Connectivity

    We use below code to check if IP is reachable

    var remote = await Plugin.Connectivity.CrossConnectivity.Current.IsRemoteReachable(remote, port, timeout);

    where remote is IP without port number

    port is port number

    timeout is like if you give it as 5 sec component pings and checks if after 5 sec if no response is achieved we can conclude after 5 seconds the IP is not reachable
