How to Trace Route an IP Address (Windows/Mac/Linux)
Performing a trace route
is a common test used to view the status of individual "hops" along a connection's path through various networks.
To perform a traceroute, follow these steps:
- Open Command Prompt (Terminal or Mac OS X or Linux users).
- Using your server's IP address, enter the following command: tracert 0.0.0.0
- For Terminal users, the full command is used: traceroute 0.0.0.0
