there's some sanity to what Zen is telling me?

No such option for me :-(

Note here that you don't appear to actually *get* to freebsdforums' IP:
>From nslookup for freebsdforums.org :
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    freebsdforums.org
Address:  207.174.189.161

I'm trying to force Zen to increase their efforts in doing whatever
they're able to do for me, but its a nightmare getting through to tech
support to even begin that process.., 

For now, I'm trying to google around for what I might need to do in
order that I can get traceroute to work for my *nix boxes here.., 

Thanks again for that..,

Regards,

Stacey
