I am looking for a way to create/run a actionscript based network traceroute from the client machines side to a destination server address. Looking at the flash.net classes I don't see a way todo this but maybe I am missing something.

Thank you

I think you need to explore Adobe Flex and combine it with Actionscript if you want to do that. I believe you have to program it to run a Separate utility on the websites sever to do that, and as long as the client accepts or his security doesn"t interfere, it will work but thats not what you want is it?

Although this sounds more your way, if that didn't help then this will.


Good Luck

to clarify - this refers to a traceroute as described in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traceroute _from_ the client side - not sending a program/runtime trace of a process/exception. from the list of AS/flex objects i am aware of this does not seem to be possible

 I did know you meant traceroute, although I am not aware of the possibility of that either.  I have received viruses from video before so I believe it would be possible if you had the Actionscript redirect you to a website that ran the traceroute from there, as long as it was programmed to trace from the client to your specified destination.  That is all I can do, Sorry I didn't help but Good Luck
