How do I perform a tracert?

If you or one of your customers is experiencing a less than optimal route into our network resulting in higher latency or packetloss then it is advisable to submit a tracert (trace route) to our support department via our ticket system.

To carry out a tracert on Windows, follow these simple steps:

Step 1

Depending on your O/S click 'Start' followed by selecting 'Run...' which can usually be found around the bottom right of your start menu assuming it has not been hidden.

Step 2

Assuming a box titled 'Run' has popped up, now type 'command' in the text box and select 'OK'

Step 3

You should now see a black box titled 'command.com', in this box type 'tracert server IP>' followed by hitting enter, your computer will take a short while to complete this task.

Step 4

Once you can see the text 'Trace Complete' in the black box, right hand click within the box and slect the option 'select all' followed by hitting enter on your keyboard, this will copy the tracert into your clipboard.

Step 5

With the tracert details in your clipboard you can either past then into note pad or paste them directly back into your support ticket ready for our inspection.

Step 6

In order for us to test our route back to you as well as your route to us, its imperative that you supply your current IP. If you do not know your IP simply copy and paste your findings from this website: www.whatismyip.com.

  • Having been a user of remote servers from multiple hosts over many years (far more than I like to remember) I have left them all due to terrible customer after service once they had my custom. After leaving a major provider a few years ago I was pointed in the direction of racksrv. Racksrv are a different breed of ...

  • Racksrv are definitely geared towards the professional user. Setup is fast and efficient. I got exactly the server that I wanted, with the distro of my choice ready to go. The real test of a provider though is how they deal with problems, and after I crashed my server recently (I misconfigured the NIC - oops!) they ...

  • My client has used RackSRV since 2013 and they have been fantastic. We migrated to RackSRV from another leading UK hosted solutions company that seemed obsessed with upselling unsuitable solutions at ridiculous prices - RackSRV have in contrast found suitable solutions at reasonable prices. It is so rare to talk to ...

  • I cant recommend RackSRV highly enough! Overall, support is definitely one of RackSRV's many strong points, if you were to single out any one in particular, and this really defined the service for us. Looking forward to renewing our service in future.
