Traceroute is a command that launches network diagnostics tools. These technologies follow data packets from their origin to their destination, allowing administrators to more effectively fix connectivity difficulties. This command is known as tracert on a Windows machine and traceroute on a Linux or Mac platform.

Traceroute is a computer network diagnostic tool that is used to troubleshoot network connectivity problems. It can be used for a variety of purposes, such as checking the performance of a local area network, finding the path taken by data packets to reach their destination, and determining which devices are connected to the internet.

Tracert and Traceroute are not "hacking" tools, although they are widely used investigation tools that have increased in popularity among ethical hackers. Tracert's key benefit is that it compiles a list of each computer/IP server's address.

  • Start typing in the Windows search box.
  • Then, in the search bar, type CMD and click Open.
  • After that, type tracert, a space, and an IP address or URL.
  • Finally, wait for the traceroute to complete by pressing Enter on your keyboard.
