Pete,<br><br>I have been trialling PP 2.20 and find that the tail end of the route does not always resolve correctly (when compared to MS tracert performed at the same time). Quite often the target host is detected but the number of hops shown is much greater that it should be.<br><br>For example at the moment I am pinging from Malaysia to Australia and the target is almost always 15 hops away, but PP first showed it as 32 hops and eventually settled as 27 hops.<br><br>The host is (IP which is a peer link from Telstra to UUnet in Australia.<br><br>Any ideas,<br><br>Frank.<br><br>
