  1. Trace Route Functions help

    below is a trace route and i am just started learning about this stuf. So
    does each hop or trace represent a node which is getting trace to or to
    server farms. how would you decribe this trace from the local computer to
    amazon website.



    Tracing route to www.amazon.com [207.171.163.90]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    Your local computer is probably something like. 192.168.111.100.
    The 1st hop on your Tracert out put is your default gateway (the host
    responsible for communicating to the outside world). The 2nd hop and
    those that follow represent routers. The last few hops could be THEIR
    default gateway, then maybe a firewall or 2, and the last hop would be
    the IP you used with the Tracert command which happens to be the
    webserver.
