The traceroute test is one of the most powerful tools you can ever use. In short, it shows the route and transit times of ICMP packets across a network from one destination to another. It can be used to get information about the network infrastructure and IP ranges around a given host or it can help you identify firewalls that may be blocking ICMP traffic. In case of connection issues this is the tool with which you can pinpoint exactly where the problems occur. To see this test in action, check out the video below.
