Traceroute


Hi Guru's
When I do a traceroute from my box to a srever it stucks at a perticular point (say 192.168.0.1) but when I do the same from another box in the same network it takes a different route (say 192.168.0.2). Can I specify to go via the 2nd route?

To add to this.... I am able to traceroute another server at the same remote network and it works since it automatically takes the 2nd route. My understanding is that when packets tries to go via 1st route it stucks coz of some issues at the router and works well when sent via 2nd.

Man traceroute/ip will say anything abt this. I just rethought and realised that It was a bit foolish question. Since this has nothing to do with the OS level and has to do with the routing table, we cannot do anything rather than waiting for the mercy of networking guys to get the route clear.

Thanks friends.

Can you ping the good route from your machine? If yes, you can easily make your box route through it by route (not traceroute!) command.
