Unanswered Question

Would traceroute work if ICMP is blocked on the way to the destination.

I have this problem too.

This will not work if the traceroute command is issued from a MS platform, as it uses icmp request message as probe packets. Unix based hosts and Cisco routers on the other hand use UDP probe packets, so it should work in this case.
