Remember, traceroutes can be blocked by any firewall, or have routing
issues of their own. The best way to see if it's up is to actually try
connecting to port 80, either via a web browser or simple telnet.
Pings, traceroutes, etc., were all designed as basic network
diagnostic tools, and a lot of people respect that, but a lot
