Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176588
draft-ietf-mpls-icmp support vanished
Last modified: 2008-10-03 18:34:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Traceroute does not seem to support draft-ietf-mpls-icmp anymore. All the major
router vendors currently support it and it is a very nice diagnostic tool. The
draft defines and extension to append MPLS label stack information to ICMP
messages as it was received by the router generating the message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I saw this last times during diagnostics (on a RHEL4 system)...wonder about the
information disclosure a little bit ;-)
Current traceroute was replaced by traceroute developed by Dmitry Butskoy. It
provides same functionality as the other, ICMP support, is IPv6 ready and has
some other features. Their interfaces are compatible so I put it in FC5 and FC6
updates as well as RAWHIDE.
Last version available is traceroute-2.0.1
New upstream version 2.0.12 is released (http://traceroute.sourceforge.net), which has support for icmp extensions (including MPLS), by `-e' cmdline option. The extensions data is printed in a slightly different manner -- in a style and spirit of origin traceroute, i.e. just after the address in the same line. MPLS data is parsed, other just hex dump.
traceroute-2.0.12 should appear soon in Fedora as well.
traceroute-2.0.12-1.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
traceroute-2.0.12-1.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8.
traceroute-2.0.12-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
traceroute-2.0.12-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
