    IP Tracing Program?


    okay, i tend to get a little out of line sometimes and like to know where someones sitting. and when i was using windows i used a program called NeoTracePro. i did find an app called VisualRoute, but its not free and im wondering if anyone knows of a program that would be equivelant.
    i got the visualroute tar from freshmeat, and ran it and this was the console error i got
    Code:
    [blackfox@21-130 ~]$ cd /home/blackfox/tmp
    [blackfox@21-130 tmp]$ cd vr9
    [blackfox@21-130 vr9]$ sh VisualRoute.sh
    + VRHOME=/root/vr9
    + VR_BROWSER=/usr/bin/mozilla
    + VR_EDITOR=xemacs
    + PATH=/root/vr9:/usr/Java/Live/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/home/blackfox/bin
    + export VRHOME
    + export VR_BROWSER
    + export VR_EDITOR
    + export PATH
    + cd /root/vr9

    okay... dont know what that was supposed to be, but maybe you know of another program that i can use instead with the same capabilites because visualroute is limited unless you purchase it.

    I think traceroute util is included in your distro.

    I think that the easiest way would be to run "traceroute <address>" in the terminal. Either that, or you can use firestarter and do the same thing. Either way should work.

    I'm not sure if there is another visual treaceroute app for Linux but you could use the command they suggested. Just type traceroute <address> and you're done.

    You may want to try the Xtraceroute program if you want some visual info:

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
