How to use TCP traceroute

Using TCP Traceroute.

Unlike the more traditional traceroute which sends either UDP or ICMP ECHO packets, TCP Traceroute is using TCP packets and, thus, can bypass the most common firewall filters.

Follow the instructions below in order to run TCP Traceroute: 

For Windows users

Windows does not have a native utility to run TCP traceroute. To run it on Windows, you will need to install the WinPcap library and download the tracetcp utility

For Linux users

To run TCP traceroute in Linux, open Terminal > type traceroute -T ************* > press the Enter key. 

NOTE: ************* should be replaced with your domain name, a server’s name or its IP address.
