Traceroute is a widely available utility on most operating systems today. Much like ping, it is a valuable tool for determining connectivity in a network. Ping allows the user to find out if there is a connection between two end systems. Traceroute does this as well, but it additionally lists the intermediate routers between the two systems. Users can therefore see the routes that packets can take from the Content Engine to another system. Use the traceroute EXEC command to find the route to a remote host, when either the host name or IP address is known.
