Unable to get the route of tracert

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.
