Hi,

When I am using tracert from other network ie (172.22.0.x) to 172.22.7.41, the trace is complete within 1 hop, why it is not showing the path which it takes to complete the trace.
I am able to ping the other network computer from my network.

What is the question?  It appears to be a direct connection.  Why were you expecting something else?

Both the machines are in different network so how come it be a direct connection?
Machine 1: 172.22.0.40
Machine 2: 172.22.7.41

It's not necessarily in a different subnet.  It is possible to have a subnet that large.  What is the subnet mask on your network card?

They might have a router in common and that wouldn't show up in at tracert.

If there is a common router, I should atleast get the router ip.

Are they on the same switch?  Is one a VM residing on the other?

When I do a tracert from here to my web site, I get the 'gateway' IP which is on my router.  But you are not necessarily going thru the 'gateway' to another local network.

Many network switches and routers optimize in your situation.
