As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and a user-specified destination host. After it determines the address of each network hop between the machines, it sends a sequence ICMP ECHO requests to each one to determine the quality of the link to each machine. As it does this, it prints running statistics about each machine. For a preview take a look at the screenshots.
mtr is distributed under the GNU General Public License.
See the COPYING file for details.
Alternatively you can get MTR from the BitWizard FTP site at ftp://ftp.bitwizard.nl/mtr/ . I'm still struggling to make my new "make a release script" adapt to the new situation with git. If the latest version is missing, and you can't get it from github for one reason or another, let me know and I'll have to make one for you manually.
I don't have much experience in using autoconf. Therefore I'm eager to learn more about it, as it seems a very useful tool. I've been editing small sections of the autoconf files, but I welcome suggestions on how to do things better. There usually IS a way to do it better....
The github bug tracking system also seems to work comfortably.
The mailing list was dismantled when I noticed that ALL messages from the last two years were spam, and no serious messages at all were in the logs. Mail me or submit a bug request or preferably a patch. :-)
kanedaaa has packages up to slackware 12.1, also a while ago. Possibly because mtr is included in the distribution.
The debian distribution has mtr builtin, so it would be preferrable to just use that.
The freebsd ports link still works and has a reasonably recent version.
If you want to contribute binaries in a way similar to this, feel free to volunteer.
