Purpose of the Network Routing Visualizer Tool

This tool shows the routes taken to a number of targets you enter in a tree like format. This is done using standard ICMP traceroute packets. As the routes diverge you will clearly see the nodes where this commonly takes place. You can use it with both internal and external targets.

About the Network Routing Visualizer Tool

The Network Routing Visualizer is designed as a utility for building a tree format map of all the routers (hops or nodes) between your computer and a set of target computers using traceroute.

How the Network Routing Visualizer Tool works

It uses Traceroute to find nodes (hops).

Traceroute is very fast in this version of NetScanTools Pro; it builds the route quickly, then processes it for display in a treeview, and simultaneously puts the route node results in a database. It uses both the ICMP echo request packets and UDP port unreachable trace methods.

To use this tool, you create a list of targets, set parameters, then build the route map. Once it is complete you can view the data on each node separately, or go into the database and view the data. The information in the database can be exported to a tab delimited text file.

Traceroute uses ICMP echo request packets to find the hops or nodes between two points, generally your computer and a remote target.
