Additional traceroute details

Secret Step 3

If you have time and are willing to share your routing information, it would also help our research. Please send your results as a private message to @staff-sysadmin for your privacy.

Example to run a traceroute in Windows Command Prompt:

tracert 45.77.160.49

…or, MTR would be better:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/winmtr

Linux example:

traceroute 45.77.160.49
