CountryTraceRoute 1.32

Reviewed by Pete Daniel

"Fast Traceroute with IP country information."

Overview

CountryTraceRoute is a tool to trace a URL back through the network hops to the originating country of the IP address.

The tool displays information about each hop as it progresses. The country for each hop is also shown. The country information is based on the owner of the IP address rather than its physical location, so results can divert away from expectations at times.

There are some customization options which includes setting the timeout response time or the number of acceptable network hops.

A simple trace route tool for users who do not need anything too fancy.

Installation

There is no installation required as CountryTraceRoute is a portable app.

No adware, toolbars, malware or spyware was included in the file archive.

CountryTraceRoute requires Windows OS.

Interface

The interface for CountryTraceRoute is a simple one with a basic menu system at the top and some small toolbar icons below the menu which provides easier access to key commands.

Below the toolbars is a wide URL entry text box and a “GO” search button. Just below the text box is a drop-down box to select the maximum number of hops, and another drop-down box for the timeout setting to stop the traceroute process.

The main display area has columns for each important piece of information as the program runs through the traceroute process. The columns include hop number, IP address, host name, country, time 1, time 2, time 3, and average time.
