traceroute from Mac (Net Utility or Terminal) will never complete

I've been trying to troubleshoot some web server issues and it exposed another issue that I cannot find the answer to.

When I try a traceroute from Mac either via Net Utility or Terminal to my web servers or client domains, they will NEVER complete. They'll get into the data center and then stall for infinitiy.

I can reboot to Win XP run the same trace and it will complete in less than a minute.

Is there any reason traceroutes would not complete via Mac? I will get the same result from home or office.

Yes that is normal. Your web hosts only allow you to reach external firewalls. After that it's mainly html headers allow web pages to be displayed from their datacenters.

when I do it via Windows or a 3rd party website, it will trace all the way to the server IP.
