Not all the Internet hosts are reachable
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:49:30 EDT
Description of Problem:
If I make an Internet Connection to any ISP and try to make a traceroute
to e.g: www.xyz.com it will work, but if I make a traceroute to
http://www.xyz.com I will not get an answer from the contacted host.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):RedHat 7.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. traceroute www.xyz.com
2. traceroute http://www.xyz.com
no result on http://www.xyz.com
get an result on any form of adress
It's not a bug. traceroute does not accept url like (ftp://blabla or http://blabla.
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
It's not a bug.
