How to perform traceroute checks in Windows, Linux and Mac O

Postby webhostingindia » Sun Apr 01, 2012 10:34 am

Here are instructions on how to perform a traceroute check on different operating systems:

Windows:

1. Open Start menu
2. Click Run
3. Type cmd and press enter
4. In the command prompt type tracert domain.com and press enter



This will provide traceroute results from your computer to domain.com. You can also use tracert with an IP, i.e. tracert 1.2.3.4



For more information on how to copy and paste the traceroute results, please check this article.

Linux:

Open a terminal window and type traceroute -I domain.com. The -I option is necessary so that the traceroute uses ICMP. You can also use traceroute with an IP, i.e. traceroute -I 1.2.3.4

Mac OS:

Mac OS is a UNIX-based operating system such as Linux. This means that you can perform a traceroute check exactly as in Linux - traceroute -I domain.com executed in a terminal window.



The other option is to go to the Applications folder > Utilities > Network Utility > Traceroute. Type the domain or IP address in the field under "Please enter the network address to trace an internet route to" and click Trace.
