cache problem?

I have a problem reaching one of my websites. It’s a traceroute problem. Traceroute fails to complete. I’ve cleared my browser cache and even waited a couple of days for my isp cache to clear, but still I have the same problem. 500 Internal Server Error. Using a proxy I can reach my website. So I know it’s the traceroute which fails to complete is the problem.

So my question is, is this data cached anywhere, and is it possible to clear the cache from the command line. Anything else I can do to resolve this?

OK. My Host did something and fixed this.

“traceroute” is not doing any caching. The DNS lookups that it depends on might be cached, but not by traceroute.

If you traceroute to a numeric IP, then you won’t be using any caching. The routers along the way might be caching routing information, but there isn’t anything that you can do about that.

That traceroute does not complete is not always a problem. Some sites block the packets that traceroute uses.

You can choose the port.
