Please note that traceroutes can appear similar
to port scans. If you see a suspected port scan alert,
for example from your firewall, with
a series of ports in the range 33434 - 33465, coming
from pinger.stanford.edu it is probably a reverse traceroute from our
web based reverse traceroute server. Please do NOT report this to
us, it will almost certainly be a waste of both of our times.

|You are about to request a traceroute that may be interpreted as an 'attack' from pinger.stanford.edu, by a firewall protecting your browser: 126.96.36.199 (ec2-54-166-172-33.compute-1.amazonaws.com). Have you read the description above and is it OK to proceed?|
