Tracerouting out past my router?
I'm using Xubuntu on my Linux box.

However, I've found that I can't traceroute out; it stops at my router. On the other hand, I can tracert out from my Winbox just fine.

Is there a port I need to open/redirect on my router? or is there some Ubuntu setting that keeps traceroute from working?
traceroute to slashdot.org (, 30 hops max, 40 byte packets

I made an iGoogle Linux theme

iGoogle Linux theme

All right, I've got a enough work to do here...Enough playing around with this stuff...
Alright, so, I forget: How do I get write access to my drives? I'm using Ubuntu 7.04

I have one older drive that linux is on, and I think it's set as master? My bootloader is on that one. I have a second drive that Windows is on and I dual boot using operating systems on two drives. thirdly I have an external harddrive

Linux drive: Whole drive is dedicated to linux. ext3. /dev/sdb1
Windows drive. Whole drive is Windows. NTFS. /dev/sda1. Mounted at /media/Main
External. NTFS. /dev/sdc1. Mounted at /media/External

I still don't know much about Linux. I'm only really on it because my windows is currently broken and, well, long boring story. All that's important is: I want to have write access to all my drives, I want to move my files on my linux drive off to the external, and I want to wipe out this linux install and re-install (not merely upgrade)

I've googled extensively and poked around on the Ubuntu site and a third-party Wiki but I just can't get the suggestions to work.

What file(s) do I need to edit, and what exactly do I need to put in them?

Volume information, which is probably helpful? -

"Mount options" for:
External: ro nosuid nodev uid=0 gid=0 umask=0222 nls=utf8 errors=countine mft_zone_multiplier=1
Main: (windows drive): same thing
