Title: Amazeing tracert
Post by: sdmike1 on November 13, 2013, 06:08:04 AM
Code
tracert -h 90 216.81.59.173

One of the reasons we are running out of IPv4 addresses. :)

The neat stuff starts around hop 9 or 10.

Copy/paste it to start/run and read the 'text' that is formed by it.

It's a command you type in a command line. Can search for cmd on windows.

tracert traces the path from you to a certain ip address and identifies all the server names in between.

Someone has deliberately exploited this for lolz.

copy paste it in (have to right click to paste in windows terminal) and see for yourself.

This is actually a rather old one.  But amusing nonetheless. :)

By any chance were you at school while you did this, Because for whatever reason public access points often block outgoing tracerts.
