Does traceroute use the http port 8080?

Asked by Papi on 2007-06-01

The only thing that shows up is my laptop. If it uses anything other than port 8080, the firewall in my router is stopping it.

traceroute uses udp port 33434 by default. you need to allow icmp traffic in your firewall for trace route to pass through.
