- A route trace based on "Ping" (using ICMP type 8 echo request) is commonly used to discover hosts along an internet path between a client and server. On MS Windows a route trace is performed using the "tracert" command. However, many hosts now drop these ICMP echo requests making a route trace impossible. TraceTCP is an equivalent to tracert using TCP instead of ICMP.
