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.

I'm a bit confused about how many hops this shows ...
[root@host-2-129 ~]# traceroute -I 10.200.0.1
traceroute to 10.200.0.1 (10.200.0.1), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
1 host-2-134.linuxzoo.net (10.0.2.134) 0.218 ms 0.195 ms 0.151 ms
2 hub1-gw.linuxzoo.net (10.200.0.1) 0.562 ms 0.418 ms 0.479 ms
I thought it was 2?
I am doing a tutorial on Linuxzoo, asking how many hops does it take to get to the last network node which is 10.200.0.1.
Looks like two for that particular path. host-2-134 is connected to both systems (host-2-129, and hub1-gw).
It depends on your network - your network mask is not the default for the 10. net (which would be 255.0.0.0), which would eliminate the hop. But that depends on your networks physical topology. Physical (or logical) partitioning of the net would add hops.
The msg '30 hops max' means it will only send up to 30 hops away ie any system further away will be deemed 'unreachable'.
This num is configurable - see the man page and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traceroute
