traceroute problem


Dear ALL,

I am trying traceroute to an ip.

I am getting error as
Traceroute (ip address) 30 hops 40 packets
1 * * *
2 * * *


but i am able to ping the ipaddress.

Is there any other way to find whole path of the host.

Please help me to solve the issue.

With Regards,
Keerti.

hi !

i don't think this is an error ! looks like those routers/gateways are firewalled ( they to not answer your icmp - query )

the route to a host depends on several things , a router can change the route if there is a better / faster one available , so the "path" can change....

you can modify your routing table ... see route command

maybee AS is what you are searching for ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonom...stem_(Internet)

This might be a firewall issue on your home router or something. By default traceroute uses UDP datagrams for probes. To change the behavior of traceroute to use ICMP Echo requests use the "-I" option. You must have superuser privileges to do this.
