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?

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.
