    Open a terminal as root, go in the directory where fping is and type:
    chmod 4664 ./fping

    If you don't like CLI, you can do it very easily with Nautilus. Open Nautilus (as root), right click on the fping icon then click on the "permission" tab. Then you can just graphically click on the permission you want to give to the file. It even shows you the chmod command to pass (look how the "text view" changes when you change the permission).
