TTL default value is 255 right? and everytime a router reaches the next hope, it gets minus 1 which means 255 254 253 etc ...... i was wondering what about if the destination router is 1000 hop away from the source router ??? knowing that TTL default is 255 how can this affect the data transmitting ? for example when you ping google.com i can see TTL = 52, is that mean i'm 52 hop away from google servers? so if there is a server in a 300 hop, what would happen?
