I just read an email about using tcptraceroute; it should yield the
same thing as traceroute -T but the poster's email reminded me that
your earlier output shows that it was stopped at
so I still think that you are being blocked - or perhaps more
accurately as someone else pointed out, you are in an ip range that
has been blocked - if not by theplanet.com then by linuxforums.org.
