Hi Jean,
The AG3 client looks for backup bridge computers in case multicast is 
not available to transport the audio and video.  It gets a list of 
bridges from the registry.  You can choose to use one of these bridges 
instead of multicast if you like by selecting one from the 
Tools->Bridges menu.  In that list you'll see the bridges that are 
currently being provided by various places.

The reason they are pinged is so they can be ranked for you.  If you 
check, you should notice the list in the Tools->Bridges menu is sorted 
by roundtrip times from nearest to farthest.
