MCS MyRoute

MCS MyRoute helps diagnose connectivity problems with detailed network routing discovery and analysis, providing visibility to poor-performing networks and devices. It includes a Java applet that enables remote users to easily test connections from the MyRoute server. Essential diagnostic tools including traceroute, ping, reverse DNS, and whois are combined into a single graphical interface that analyzes Internet connections, reporting quick and essential data points for finding connectivity problems. An IP location database identifies the geographical location of IP addresses and Web servers, showing the path of an Internet connection on a global map.

            It's spyware. Yes, unforunatly the program "Phone's Home" to do a license audit on visualware's servers every time you run a trace.

            I was very disapointed when I found this out, it's such a great peice of software, but privacy always comes first.

            I imedaitly unistalled it, and I am demanding a refund from Visualware.

            It's a shame, really it is.

            Nice program, but...
            Why commercial? There really can't be tonnes of money in a "traceroute" clone, no matter HOW graphical it is. That seems like a sure-fire way to lose business, IMHO, but that's just my opinion. They've not changed their model, since they released the package, so I guess someone must be buying it. Their choice of a poor-quality, patented compression algorithm, for distributing the program doesn't exactly fill me with joy, either.


            Graphical traceroutes are useful tools, as they give much more depth and meaning to the logical descriptions. However, their usefulness is severely limited if they're impractical to obtain or use.
