Description Daniel Meynen 2000-10-05 17:28:46 EDT
The version of traceroute-1.4a5-23.i386 doesn't work when connection is
made with pppoe (rp-pppoe-2.2-4.i386).

I can only use traceroute to find my own machine, but not another one on
the Internet.

But traceroute works right if I use the -s option in the command line,

# traceroute -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx bugzilla.redhat.com

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the ppp0 interface.

after upgrading to rh7.0 & traceroute-1.4a5-23, a traceroute to 
redhat.com/internet uses the correct interface ppp0 but a private internal 
source of 192.168.0.x. which is impossible.  route table is correct with a 
default to internet gateway and ppp0 if.  downgrading to traceroute-1.4a5-18 
fixed this for me.  using rp-pppoe-2.3-1.  you'd think traceroute would use the 
route table no?  doesn't seem to.
