Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

there is no reason you should be always able to trace to it. the ISP may firewall, the end user might firewall themselves, the IP might currently not be in user due to dhcp allocation of IP's from a pool, or many other things besides.
Sounds a lot to me like you want to get this guy back for something or other, yet you've not said a thing about what you plan to "connect" to and as you're not au fait with traceroute, I don't think he has much to worry about...
no nothing like this... this computer is my computer on my homecountry/town and i installed a vnc server on it before i go. but i cannot connect.. i remember that i opened the port on the router and i dont have any firewall on the computer... i asked someone to type on internet explorer my address to get the ip to try connect again but nothing..
So port is open on vnc
i cant even ping.. that is more reasonable for me if the port is blocked by the router... any ideas why i cannot connect ??
With no firewall, a VNC server listening, and a published IP for others to see, you may be running an unnecessary risk of attack. What security do you have for this VNC connection? Hopefully the results 5900/tcp filtered are correct. Better to tunnel VNC over SSH or a VPN.
It does however appear from your results that port 5900 is blocked.
