I have a Windows Server 2003r2 running Sql 2000, I am having problems with programs that are supposed to be making reqests to the apps on this server, while trying to trouble shoot I ran a trace route to the program, the first hop is, this confuses me as my gateway is, I also ran a traceroute to, etc. Always the first hop is the same. First hop of a tracerout should always be the Gateway shouldn't?? I'm just wondering if whatever is causing my path out to be different is also causing my problems with the Apps.
