I'm trying to use traceroute on a VMware guest Linux machine, and this is the result :

traceroute to 172.217.9.228 (172.217.9.228), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
 1  10.10.0.1  183.499 ms  193.008 ms  192.763 ms

Host OS is windows and I tried the equivalent command (tracert) on windows and it shows about 26 hops with their IPs.

Why is this happening? And what configuration should I change to make it work?

UPDATE

I found out when no response is returned to traceroute it shows an asterisk (*), so the problem must be between the host OS and VMware guest.
