How does traceroute work? traceroute is a tool that people often use to determine the path of a packet as it starts from your machine to your destination server. On Ubuntu systems you can install it using the following command:
$ sudo apt install traceroute Then you can use it to trace the route back to let’s say this server (asynchronous.in) :
$ traceroute asynchronous.in traceroute to asynchronous.in (126.96.36.199), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets 1 10.
