WinTrace is useful because it allows you to view the routing information of a website such as the IP address, response time, hostname and country. Simply enter a Web address or a valid host name or a valid IP address and WinTrace brings up a detailed breakdown of the traffic information. Note that if you're having problems installing it, it's probably because you don't have Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher installed. The information yielded by WinTrace won't be of much use to the average home user but for network administrators or webmasters who have been experiencing network traffic problems, it's much easier than trying to identify the problem by isolating certain aspects of the connection and testing them separately. If your traffic is being intercepted or interfered with in anyway, then WinTrace should reveal abnormal packet readings.
A useful tool for network managers and webmasters worried about the security of traffic to their site or network or trying to identify a problem.
