It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Somebody spent a fair amount of time setting up their DNS server to supply bogus reverse DNS lookup results. These results give the opening text of Star Wars if you do the lookups in the order that a packet travels into the network...which is exactly what the traceroute application does.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Apparently, that would be Ryan Werber, a CCIE at beaglenetworks.net.

Although, I would disagree with the sentiment. I think it's a clever bit of techno-art.

Mark, I probably don't have my PATH set to the right version of that command, but this way worked for me best:

tracert -h 70 216.81.59.173

It took 16 hops before it got out of my network.

Ahh, I should have mentioned that the example was for a Linux box. Windows would have a different command and parameters.

Given the almost uniform latency, this trace implies to me that the addresses themselves are secondary addresses on a single - or at most two - physical hosts, with a static route chaining between them.

Silly firewalls prevent me from doing this at work. My output is a few hops followed by about 65 lines of "* * *".

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

If you add the -w switch to the tracert command, then you can specify (in milliseconds) how long you will wait before a timeout is triggered.

Also, the -h switch is not required if the route is 30 (I think) hops or fewer.
