How to traceroute

edited June 2015 in Server Management
Traceroute will identify each IP packet on the way from your computer to another website. Performing a traceroute command can be helpful in determining if server issues are causing connection problems for you as you can see exactly where the IP packet stopped.

To get started on Windows 8 press the Windows key and search for " cmd ."

If you are using a previous version of Windows, you can search via the start button. If you are using a Mac, you can use the magnified glass search icon at the top right of the screen the search for terminal.

In the command prompt window type: tracert thexyz.com

I have used thexyz.com for this example, you should use your own domain or IP.

You will then start to see the results.

    This was way over my head.

  • A computer virus is an insect. You would possibly refuse to go camping because of your excessive dislike for bugs. Bug can also be a verb that means "annoy." Most likely, bugs worm you. There are bugs you can see, like bees, and bugs that are plenty smaller, like viruses and bacteria.
