There is a problem with Windows firewall. If you try to make traceroute from
unix box to windows box it fails because it uses UDP protocol (Windows use
ICMP protocol).


If UDP is the specific problem, can you set your traceroute client to use ICMP echo instead?

As an example, the "-I" switch sets the Fedora Core Linux traceroute application into ICMP mode, although in this case, it needs to be run as the superuser.
