A

"tracert" command allows you to trace IP routing on Windows systems. The output lists the interface IP address of each gateway reached by a dummy message fired from the local host to the specified destination.

For example, the local host has an IP address of 172.16.0.3. The destination host has an IP address of 11.1.0.1. The output of the "tracert" command tells us that an IP message from the local host can reach the destination over 10 subnets. In other words, a message will jump over 10 hops to reach the destination.
