    Apparently on a router with ID 10.100.16.133 (or on next behind him towards destination) UDP is blocked (Cisco traceroute uses UDP), but ICMP echo allowed. Dec 13, 2018 at 12:13
  • @AndreyProkhorov You should make this an answer to the question

    Or the host is not responding with the required "port unreachable" message.
