    Can anyone explain the logic of this traceroute command, what do you learn from this command?

    Is it just me or does no one use -n option? It does cut down somewhat on the time not having to use DNS. Also tcptraceroute is a bit quicker then the standard traceroute. I did two traceroutes to The traceroute took 10 seconds, tcptraceroute took 5 seconds. Note that as I repeated...

    Where did your username come from?

    Mine's quite simple. I came across this forum early last year and was quite happy with the content and the civility of the members, so I joined. I could not for the life of me think of a good name, never was good at coming up with something catchy. After much pondering and my best...
