If you do not wish to do this, you can set `pinger.SetPrivileged(true)` and
run as super-user.
use setcap to allow your binary using go-ping to bind to raw sockets
(or just run as super-user):
```
setcap cap_net_raw=+ep /bin/goping-binary
```
See [this blog](https://sturmflut.github.io/linux/ubuntu/2015/01/17/unprivileged-icmp-sockets-on-linux/)
and [the Go icmp library](https://godoc.org/golang.org/x/net/icmp) for more details.
