I haven't used it, but it looks like this may do the trick: JNetTool and is available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/jnettool/

Brief description taken from the sourceforge page:
A network tool with gui for whois, ping, traceroute, ns lookup (dig, dns), portscan, network calculator, visual net plan - written in java.

Hi QEMS,

Thanks for the answer.

However I am looking for a "Visual" trace not just the classic text of a trace result.

Regards

Ah - it looked like it might have the required functionality from the description.

Maybe http://sourceforge.net/projects/geotrace/ will do what you need?

There are some others that promising but they appear to be for linux such as http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/~d3august/xt/

I had a quick search of sourceforge for options and there were quite a lot of results, you may have some luck checking there or at freshmeat.

I have used pingplotter in the past, however that isn't open source but is pretty cheap to purchase.

Hopefully someone who has used an alternative will be able to offer a reccomendation.

Good luck finding something that suits your needs =)
