Understanding the TraceRoute

In this article we will discuss Understanding the TraceRoute, will make brief discussion on Understanding the TraceRoute, In last article we discuss about Network Baseline.

A trace returns a list of hops as a packet is routed through a network. The form of the command depends on where the command is issued. When performing the trace from a Windows computer, use tracert. When performing the trace from a router CLI, use traceroute.

Output of the tracert command entered on Host 1 to trace the route to Host 2. The only successful response was from the gateway on Router A. Trace requests to the next hop timed out, meaning that the next hop router did not respond. The trace results indicate that there is either a failure in the internetwork beyond the LAN, or that these routers have been configured to not respond to echo requests used in the trace.
