Ultimate Traceroute is a network tool that allows you to trace the route of an IP or host name to its source determining the route taken by packets across the network. It shows the list of routers traversed exactly like the "tracert" MS-DOS command showing the IP, address and hostname of each hop, showing 30 hopes maximum. If a packet does not return within the expected time out an asterisk will be showed. You just have to type the address name or the IP of the host and click in the "Start Trace" button. If you wish to stop the scanning, click on the "Stop" button. When installing the program a security warning will appear, you have to click in the "Run" button to continue and the setup wizard will guide you to install the program. You have to select a destination folder and you will be able to create a desktop icon and create a quick launch icon. At the end of installation an error can occur while trying to replace the file "shdocvw.dll" but you can click on the "Ignore" button and the program will be installed.
- It is the same like using the MS-DOS command "tracert" but the advantage is that you don't have to open the command window
- There is no help to use the software. When installing an error can occur while trying to replace the file "shdocvw.dll" but you can click in the "Ignore" button. Another disadvantage is that you don't have options like the "tracert" command
