How does Traceroute work? (27th Jul 17 at 11:32am UTC)
How does Traceroute work?
Quote Reply

First of all ... seven different traceroute source code files located, exploded, analyzed ...

In a nutshell .... the first thing done is a lookup for the 'A Record' via a RADB listing .. this gets one that 'almost immediate" [traceroute to] message displayed .... Part of the 'secret' you're asking about is that the "A Record" is nothing but "Domain --> IP address" (the RADB thing is yet another whole different discussion)

Anyway, now that the 'source IP address' (typically 'your' computer) and the 'target IP address' has been found, the 'real' traceroute stuff starts. After sorting through all that source code, ths is another thing that is actually more amazing that it works as fast as it does (actually some of the thoughts were more like 'worked at all

Thank you !!
