How to get GNU utils on Android?

I may be going about this entirely the wrong way, but I would really like to run traceroute on my Android to see what path traffic takes when traveling to the server hosting this site (i.e. my living room PC).

Is there a way to run GNU tools on Android? Traceroute is but one example, less, cat, etc. wold be handy.

Are there Android equivalents?

Any advice much appreciated...

Aha, it's not tracert, it's traceroute.

When superuser.

Okay, now for which, less, grep, ping, ...

Traceroute works on IP addresses; how do I get host name resolving working?

Surprise, it's called ping. Hadn't tried that one before.

Also, it worked when I typed ping maow.net, so host name resolving is working here.

Hmmm.
