Traceroute is a network tool used to determine the route a packet takes across a network. It’s available on Windows, Mac, and Linux, so there’s nothing you need to install to perform a traceroute.


  1. Open the Start menu
  2. Click on Run
  3. Type cmd and press the OK button
  4. In the command prompt, type tracert and press the Enter key

To copy the output, right-click anywhere in the window and select Mark. You can press Enter to copy all of the output, or select the text you want to copy and then right-click with your mouse. Paste the copied text by hitting Ctrl + V.


  1. Open a terminal window
  2. Type traceroute -I

Mac OS

  1. Go to ApplicationsUtilitiesNetwork UtilityTraceroute
  2. Type the domain or IP address in the appropriate input field and press *Trace**

You can also open a terminal window and use the same instructions as you would for performing a traceroute in Linux.
