TCP trace route in windows using tracetcp

Trace route is a nice tool to find where in network resides the actual problem. Windows tracert uses ICMP. ICMP traces can often be inaccurate. To get a more realistic picture of what is going on we will use TCP based trace route. For this in windows based systems we can use tracetcp tool. In this post we will see how to install tracetcp in windows 7 and use it.


You can download a TCP trace route utility for Windows from the following location:

You will need to download and install WinPcap first to be able to use tracetcp from the command line. You can download WinPcap from here:
