need to do traceroute in a specific protocol (SCTP, TCP, UDP)


Given that traceroute in the Nmap program is not operating on the basis of what is specified by the user (its purpose is security auditing rather than network failure diagnosis), and the regular traceroute program does not support SCTP, does anyone have a suggestion for an alternate program? For now I want to do a traceroute in the SCTP protocol. A general purpose program that does what the network/system administrator wants to do might be useful if such a beast exists.

The only thing I can think of would be a very specific wireshark capture-filter, just to get the protocol/port you're interested in. If you have that running on a machine that has access to a span-port on your core router, you'd be able to see where the packet(s) went.

Just a thought.

Unfortunately, I only have access to the end points. I'm trying to pinpoint a specific place where the packets are not going beyond so I can identify which N/A is responsible.
