Working with TraceRoute
TraceRoute shows you the path a packet sent from your machine to some other machine on the network goes as it hops from router to router. It will show you the IP address (and the actual name, usually) of each router, line-by-line.
You can set the hops, tries per hop, time out and packet size. (Fig. 1)
Example: Enter a hostname or a IP into the Host field and click Ask Server button.
As a result you can see a table with the following columns: Hop Number, IP Address, Response Time, Host Name, Result. (Fig. 2)
