WhatRoute is designed to find the names of all the routers an IP packet passes through on its way from your Mac to a destination host. It also measures the round-trip time from your Mac to the router, thus enabling you to determine slow links--or hops--in the Internet. WhatRoute can also find dead links, such as routers that don't respond.
- A geo-location server is queried and the locations of the hosts discovered in a trace or seen active on the LAN, can be plotted on a low resolution map or viewed in high resolution on Google Earth
- WhatRoute also provides network and port scanning, ping, whois, DNS,
Note: WhatRoute can now use Location Services to determine more accurately your location for display on the maps. This data is only held locally by WhatRoute and is never propogated to any 3rd parties. Should you choose to deny access to Location Services, WhatRoute will continue to function, using your external IP for local geolocation.
