time warner can bite me

i’ve been playing with ‘traceproto’ a bit lately.

if you haven’t heard of it, it’s a nifty tool, which is likely best summarized by the debian package description:

Traceproto is a traceroute replacement written in C that allows the user to specify the protocol and port to trace to. It currently supports TCP, UDP, and ICMP traces with the possibility of others in the future. A network server version is also planned.

so, i decided to see (very informally) how my roadrunner service from time warner cable may be impacting my VoIP service.

here’s the results:
