editor's review




Trace Route GUI is a software application which was built specifically to aid people in identifying routing problems, by viewing a list of the routers traversed.

Simple setup

The installation process is a piece of cake as it does not offer to download any products that are not actually necessary for the utility to work properly and it does not last longer than a few moments. After you are done with it, you come across a pretty minimal and clean interface, as it encompasses of a few buttons and boxes, and a pane in which to display details. No Help contents are supported, yet its overall simplicity enables both power and novice users to easily work with it.

Options you can tweak and save settings

This tool helps you identify routing problems or firewalls that may be blocking access to a site, as well as identify the path taken to reach a particular destination on the network. This is possible by simply inputting an IP address in the appropriate box and clicking the “Trace Route” button.

In addition to that, you should know it is possible to adjust the values for maximum number of hops and timeout (expressed in milliseconds), and set up the application to resolve addresses to hostnames. The main window is going to display as a list, all routers reached, along with hop number, host name, IP address and timeout.

By right-clicking on an item, you bring up a context menu which lets you copy the selected IP address or host name to the Clipboard for further use or save the settings, so that you can use them at a later date.


To wrap it up, Trace Route GUI is a pretty efficient piece of software, which runs without popping up errors, freezing and hanging and without putting a strain on your computer’s performance. The interface is suitable to all user categories and tasks are completed in a fair amount of time.
