don't mean to sound patronising.. but it well.. it traces the route the TCP or whatever takes to get to it's destination.

to get from a to b you need to go through DNS servers, your ISP, etc.. to get to your destination.

as you can see, it's gnerally honing down to the right IP address as it resolves it further and further.

What did you expect it to do? (serious, not sarcastic i promise!)

Does anyone know of any good Xwindows trace utilities? I have seen some on Windows that actually show a map of the US/world and they show the route taken... very cool. Hoping to find something similar for Linux/Xwindows.
