Description Rocky Pope 2000-10-28 14:42:38 EDT
I cannot seem to get traceroute to run, as it returns a command not found error message. I have tried running it from /usr/sbin directory (logged in as root), also with no success. It does appear in the /usr/sbin directory though. According to RPM, it is in fact installed. The version number is 1.4a5, release 23. Any ideas? Thanks, Rocky Pope
Comment 1 Rocky Pope 2000-10-28 15:00:25 EDT
The Linux newbie I am, I did not try running traceroute as /usr/sbin/traceroute www.anyplace.com. When I ran the command that way, it ran. If I manually switched to /usr/sbin (cd /usr/sbin) and ran traceroute from that directory, it did not run.

For security reasons, the current directory is not automatically added to the path. Changing to /usr/sbin and running ./traceroute would have worked as well.
