Windows tracert

All Windows versions that come with TCP/IP support include a tracert command, which is a simple traceroute client that uses ICMP probes. The (few) options are slightly different from the Unix variants of traceroute. In short, -d is used to suppress address-to-name resolution (-n in Unix traceroute), -h specifies the maximum hopcount (-m in the Unix version), -j is used to specify loose source routes (-g in Unix), and although the same -w option is used to specify the timeout, tracert interprets it in milliseconds, while in Unix it is specified in seconds.
