Ping returns "TTL Expired" = normal status in SIM

I am running SIM 5.1 for Windows. In addition to it monitor my HP servers, which it does flawlessly, I have it ping some remote machines (non-HP, Windows XP) on the other side of satellite connections to verify they are up and running. (Ping only due to high latency and bandwidth limitations.)However, if the far satellite connection is down, a ping returns a TTL Expired. But SIM will show the machine is normal.

Is there a way to change this behavior so that SIM shows the machine unreachable?
