A simple streamlined trace-route tool mapping the hosts world location.
Pros & Cons:
Alien IP is a simple streamlined world map based trace-route tool. It utilizes many of 3D Traceroute advantages with an easy-to-use interface and easy-to-understand controls.
Simply input an IP# or URL address and Alien IP takes you right there by mapping the hosts world location. Alien IP can also locate a host, ping a host, resolve an IP range, create trace lists, ID local information, and it even provides a nifty IP calculator.
The software offers an unlimited trial period with a nag message and an unregistered mark imposed over the map. It can't resolve names once in a while and sometimes produces questionable results.
