    question for Dave about tracert

    Dave, I haven't been able to reach webbbs-team.org since saturday.

    I've been checking out different things and read your article about tracert.

    but when I do tracert to here from my pc, this is what I get:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>tracert mediacollege.com

    Tracing route to mediacollege.com [69.72.215.138]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    Trace complete.

    Hi Lynne, sorry about the delay. I've been very preoccupied lately.

    That's a very strange tracert and I'm really not sure what that's about. I'll run it past Scratch and see what he says.

    Did you manage to get back to webbbs-team.org and/or find out what was wrong?

    I recently switched to FIOS (fiber optics) for my internet connection. Now, the modem and router are one piece (not sure I like this).. I don't know if this would have anything to do with it. Unfortunately, I don't remember running traceroute before the change, so I don't have anything to compare it to.

    yes, what happened is that I set up a mailbox for myself. Then I set up the account in outlook to read the pop mailbox on webbbs-team.org. well, I typed in lynnel instead of lynne as a user. so, it kept polling with an invalid user. the host thought "hacker" and banned me. Took me a while to realize what had happened though. You would think that when a host does this, they would send a list of who they banned to the owner of the site (John, in this case).

    The only reason we found it is when I thought about it, I realized that I lost access a bit after setting up the mailbox, and I wondered if this had anything to do with it.

    what a pain in the patooty.

    but.. I'm back on.

    I still would like to know about that traceroute when you have the time.

    I found a nice product, though. Can't afford it for my purposes.. but it is a very nice visual product:

    try the demo. cool.

    so.. what did Scratch say about this? I'm a curious cat.

    Sorry... I've put a note on my calendar to remind him for an answer. Maybe he doesn't have one
