It's not a bug. traceroute does not accept url like (ftp://blabla or http://blabla.

Comment 2 Raoul Thill 2001-10-30 13:45:15 UTC
so let us use the official Red Hat Site, if I try to traceroute www.redhat.com 
I will get an answer from the host, but if I traceroute to 
http://www.redhat.com I will never get an answer from the host !

I've tried also several installations and on all those installations I've got 
this problem via my ISDN connection.
I'm using WWWOFFLE to download Internet sites and WWWOFFLE automaticly makes 
http:// before my adress. www.redhat.com will get http://www.redhat.com
