Tracert

Syntax

tracert [-d] [-h MaximumHops] [-j HostList] [-w Timeout] [TargetName]
Parameters

-d Prevents tracert from attempting to resolve the IP addresses of intermediate routers to their names. This can speed up the display of tracert results.

-h MaximumHops Specifies the maximum number of hops in the path to search for the target (destination). The default is 30 hops.

-j HostList Specifies that Echo Request messages use the Loose Source Route option in the IP header with the set of intermediate destinations specified in HostList. With loose source routing, successive intermediate destinations can be separated by one or multiple routers. The maximum number of addresses or names in the host list is 9. TheHostList is a series of IP addresses (in dotted decimal notation) separated by spaces.

-w Timeout Specifies the amount of time in milliseconds to wait for the ICMP Time Exceeded or Echo Reply message corresponding to a given Echo Request message to be received. If not received within the time-out, an asterisk (*) is displayed. The default time-out is 4000 (4 seconds).

TargetName Specifies the destination, identified either by IP address or host name.

-? Displays help at the command prompt.
