I would just kill dccm and then use `traceroute -p` with various values
larger than 6277.

Dccm is a DCC client.  Dccd is the DCC server.  Unless your mail system
handles 50,000 to 100,000 mail messags/day, you consume less bandwidth,
CPU cycles, and so forth both of your own and of other DCC servers by
using the public DCC servers.  Each DCC client-server transaction
involves about 100 bytes.  A "flood" of checksums is currently somewhat
less than 10 MBytes/day, and so the 100 Kmsgs/day threshold.

In short, no, at least to start, you don't need dccd.

Not as far as I know.
