The Trace route function is similar to Windows' tracert command but is more convenient. You can specify the following settings:
- Number of hops
- Response timeout
The trace route results and error messages are displayed in the Results window (Fig. 1) and can be displayed on the map by arrows between hosts (Click Show on map to do this).

To make the route tracing process faster, select the Do not detect DNS names option.
The indicator in the upper right corner informs whether the system is ready (green) or busy (red).
The tracing process can be cancelled before its completion by clicking the button Stop.
