How can I perform a traceroute?

Traceroutes can be extremely beneficial when attempting to debug/diagnose possible network related issues. Unfortunately, performing a traceroute differs by Operating System. Look for your specific Operating System for instructions below.


Windows 7

  • Click the Start Menu (button)
  • Inside the Search tool (Search programs and files) type 'cmd'.

  • The only result should be the correct relevant Windows Command Prompt.

  • At the command prompt, type 'tracert' with the IP address or domain in which you are attempting to determine the trace. For this example, we will trace to google.com
  tracert google.com

  • This provide a complete break down of how google.com is being reached from your current location.


OS X

Coming Soon Stay tuned.
