traceroute 2.1.0 Tracks the route taken by packets over an IP network

This package provides a modern, but Linux-specific implementation of the traceroute command that can be used to follow the route taken by packets on an IP network on their way to a given host. It utilizes the IP protocol's time to live (TTL) field and attempts to elicit an ICMP TIME_EXCEEDED response from each gateway along the path to the host. Compared to other implementations, this traceroute command allows some traces for unprivileged users.
