Geographically trace online data-packet routes.

What is WhatRoute for Mac

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, and LAN monitoring functions.
  • Find the ASN with which a network is registered and the networks with which it peers.
  • View network flows

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

I pushed the map to my big tv, full screen. Fascinating to watch the flow of connections flying around on the map.

Not to fond of the layout on the program WhatRoute. I use VisualRoute, i like the layout much more and i guess because i have bought it.

A great all-in-one tool for Whois, Trace, Ping, Query, Finger, Address Scan, and Port Scan tasks. One request: It would be great if the map could be made bigger and would also show some information for Whois queries. Still, clearly a 5 star application. Thanks to the developer!

A useful tool. It could need a graphical update though. It looks more like an Mac OS 9 app than a OS X app :)
