    Better Network Trace Utility

    Having problems trying to get two third parties to open up network connections needed, what I would like is a better ability to tracert from one end to another as using the stock one in Windows just masks everything as "Request Timed Out" even in connections that work correctly.

    Does anyone know of a good util which I can do this with? Free is best, but I don't mind paying out if its a single user licence that I can take with me to different places rather than a one time install thing.

    autoscan can be useful depending on what you intend to do. Cygwin and windows native tools with wireshark are pretty powerful though.

      They all seem to be geared towards showing whats connected to where, rather than the route taken to get there but thanks

        what happens when you run tracert? Other tools that do the same job mostly work in the same way, progressive TTL should work.

          Everything is "Request Timed Out" once it passes my default gateway

          Alas I may be onto a loser and have to get each of the endpoints network guys sat together and beat them over the head with a router

            I'd certainly increase the timeout on the tracert command line to some large value just to check it's a real issue, and pathping a few of the routes to see that the information lines up between the tools. The packets may be intentionally blocked but this should become apparent.

              If you're getting request timed out as soon as it passes your gateway then it will be your firewall blocking the ICMP messages coming back. If you can you need to configure your firewall/router to allow ICMP messages such as time exceeded and network unreachable back into your network.

              I tend to use traceroute within Ubuntu but the Windows version will give you similar results although troubleshooting something like this usually requires access to firewall logs so you can see what's being blocked, even a working traceroute might not help you here.
