Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190092
regression: -I option does not work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
The traceroute currently in FC5 has regressed and does not have an -I option
allowing ICMP packets to be sent instead of UDP.
This is important in circumstances where UDP and packets are filtered and/or
handled differently. It also breaks all existing scripts and applications using -I.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run traceroute with -I option.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. traceroute -I somewhere
traceroute: invalid option -- I
usage: traceroute [-nFV] [-f first_ttl] [-m max_hops] [-p port]
[-s source_addr] [-i interface] [-g gateway]
[-t tos] [-w timeout] [-q nqueries] host [packetlen]
For it to work.
