Traceroute (Best windows tools for hacking)

Traceroute works by exploiting a feature of the internet protocol called TTL or Time To Live.

Traceroute reveals the path IP packets travel between two systems by sending out consecutive sets of UDP or ICMP packets with ever-increasing TTLs.

As each router process an IP packet, it decrements the TTL. When the TTL reaches 

zero, that router sends back a “TTL exceeded” message (using ICMP) to the originator.

Routers with reverse DNS entries may reveal the name of routers, network affiliation, and geographic location.

To start traceroute on your windows : 
  •   Click Start ==>Run
  •   Type cmd on the run dialog box
