Linux Firewall Reboot Script

This script attempts to ping a list of well-known internet hosts, and if it fails to contact any of them will reboot the system. I have used this with great success on my IPCop firewall, which occasionally drops its internet connection and will reconnect if rebooted. Schedule this using cron to perform a connectivity check every 15 minutes
