    Path Analyzer Pro is a graphical Route-Tracing application. It can be used to investigate DNS, WHOIS, and network resolution issues.
    Featured in the Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course. Module 2, video 5.
    http://fastfix.my?exam=video/footprinting-path-analyzer-pro-lab-screen-capture/

    There have been quite a few topics started regarding issues running this program effectively; This topic is intended to answer any questions about how to correctly install and use it. If you are experiencing difficulty with Path Analyzer Pro please post in this thread with as much information as possible so we can assist you.
    Please do not start additional topics.

    General Info:

    Website: https://www.pathanalyzer.com
    Download: https://www.pathanalyzer.com/download.opp

    Supported Operating Systems:

    Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit
    Microsoft Windows 2003 Server
    Microsoft Windows XP
    Apple MacOS X 10.5-10.7

    Notice Windows 7, 8, 8.1 are not listed.

     WINDOWS METHOD 

    There are 2 primary methods for getting Path Analyzer Pro functioning correctly. The simpliest is to disable your Firewall before running the program. The other involves creating a virtual machine of a Windows XP computer. Both methods are covered below.

     Method 1 – Disable system Firewall 

    Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 Users should take notice that Path Analyzer Pro is not fully supported by those operating systems. Rather, Microsoft removed the ability of system firewall to create/send RAW SOCKET data packets after XP Service Pack 0.

    1. Open an Administrative Command Prompt
    2. Input the following command: netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off
    3. Run Path Analyzer Pro
    4. When finished, re-enable the Firewall with the following:
      netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on

    I created a batch script to do this and make the process even simpler.

    @ECHO OFF
    netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Path Analyzer Pro 2.7\papro.exe" && netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on
    exit


     Method 2 – XP Virtual Machine 

    Now, understandably, access to XP may not seem possible to many of you. It’s a dinosaur, technologically speaking! However, the good folks at Microsoft have made Virtual Machine versions of XP available (to web developers looking to test with IE6, but we can take advantage of that :D). The VM’s are availalbe for Hyper-V, VirtualBox, and VMWare. Although, they expire after 90 days but you could always download again.

    Configuring the XP VM is outside of the scope of this thread. Please see this awesome guide for how to download and configure the VirtualBox XP VM:
    http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/download-windows-xp-for-free-and-legally-straight-from-microsoft-si/


    Once you have your XP VM up and running, all you should have to do is download and install the program; You should be able to follow along with the lab without issue at that point!

     LINUX METHOD 

    The Linux version of Path Analyzer Pro is designed for Debian or Debian-based systems. This means that Ubuntu, MINT, and Kali, to name a few, are all supported. Only i386 (x86) architecture is supported! I tried several methods of installing to x64 systems, but I couldn’t get it to work.

    For this method you will need 2 files:
    libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_i386.deb
    papro-2.6-10.i386_MOD.deb

    Open a terminal and navigate to the direction you downloaded the files to, and input the following command:
    sudo dpkg -i libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i papro-2.6-10.i386_MOD.deb

    Path Analyzer Pro can be started with the command:papro

    I hope this helps any of you struggling with this particular Lab Video and/or software! Post if you have any questions.

    Hi @pksinghlinux, that’s great! I’m glad you were able to get it running.

    Are you receiving replies as well? When I tested on my 8.1 machine I kept getting the ‘no reply packets received after ttl 1’ message and never managed to get any relevant data.

    EDIT: The only times I have personally seen this program function correctly was either on XP or Kali. And with Kali I had to modify the developer provided .deb file and install an old version of the SSL Libraries.

    If any one is actually able to get this running without the “no replies after TTL1” error with Win 7, 8 or 8.1 please tell me how so I can feature the method here!

    you actually do not need to run an XP VM to run this application. If you are running Windows 7 or above perform the following steps to run the application within the host OS.

    1. After installation, locate the executable. if you ran through the default setup, then you can see it under path analyzer in your windows start menu under all programs, or the File Explorer Path generally located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Path Analyzer Pro 2.7\papro.exe , however, some of you may choose to install to an alternate path, which is OK, but make sure you document or remember the actually location so you don’t have to search for it wasting your time and your PC’s resources.
    2. Right click the executable, select properties
    3. select the compatibility tab
    4. Under “Compatibility Mode” tick the box “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select “Windows XP (Service pack 3)”
    5. While still in application properties under compatibility, enable the option “Run this program as an Administrator”
    6. Hit “Apply” then “OK”
    7. You can now run Path Analyzer Pro in Windows 7 and above without a VM.

    Hey @ebaco, thanks for providing an alternative method!

    Unfortunately, I’m not sure it’s a consistent solution :(. I’ve seen others mention this method on other topics, and I’ve tried it with no success. No matter what settings I use with the program it always ends up spitting out the “No reply packets received after TTL1. You may try changing settings” message. I just tried again on a different Win7 system, same result.

    Are you certain there is nothing else you are doing to get this working? All the Win7 boxes I’ve tested on have been Pro, perhaps you’re using a different version?

    Hopefully you can shed some light on this, I’d love to feature a method that will work without having to use an XP VM!

    No problem, I too use Windows 7 pro 64 bit. One thing I would reccomendations doing is install advanced uninstaller (make sure to custom install so you don’t get bloatware) or ur use a trial of revolution uninstaller pro, and uninstaller the app, remove all folders and registries, reboot. Then before reinstall, use the installation monitor module from advanced uninstaller prior to installing. This will generate a text file to help narrow down the issue if it persist.

    Pretty sure, I will run the 2nd method I referenced and post the text output here later this evening.

    Hey @ashmenendez, I’d be happy to assist but can you please provide some more info?

    Did you follow the above method to run PAP on a XP virtual machine or the method from @ebaco to set the Compatibility settings to run like XP SP3 on a windows 7/8/9/10 pc?

    Appreciate you getting back to about this. I ran the same report, after your recommendation, but I can’t seem to figure how it’s relevant to the error that I’m getting. Simply can’t get any replies after TTL1 with Windows 7 and compatibility set to XP SP3. Or any other compatibility setting for that matter.

    also saw this from @tyler Durden

    1) Start a Command Prompt (cmd.exe) or Select “Run” from the Start menu
    2) Type “WF.msc” and press return
    3) Select “Inbound Rules” folder in left pane
    4) Click “New Rule” in right pane
    5) Select “Program”, click Next
    6) Use the “Browse…” button to find the path of Path Analyzer Pro (e.g., “\Program Files\Path Analyzer Pro 2.5\papro.exe”), click Next
    7) Select “Allow the connection” and click Next
    8) Check all – Domain, Private, Public – checkboxes
    9) Choose name for rule and click Finish

    @ebaco sure thing! report can be found here http://rhigmus.sdf1.org/pap_monitored_report.html

    Edit Update: Adding the firewall rule made no difference. Tried with every compatibility option available. Server 2003 setting even threw up the generic ‘Read’ error, rather than the TTL1 reply issue.

    2 things to try, in 3 steps.
    1. Disable IPV6 on all nice – then test
    2. If still not working, then Install the reliable multicultural protocol on your nic, LAN or WLAN doesn’t matter will communicate across all interfaces – test
    3. If no luck here, run a wireshark in conjunction while attempting execution to see the management headers to see where the breakpoint is on the outbound packet. Please post and fuzz out any identifying data.

    @stark also, if you have not, enable local administrator and add your profile to administrators group.
