Re: traceroute problems**That Works
Thanks mike808. The -I option works. It worked with the firewall off and
So does that mean that I need to put a rule in iptables about using UDP
packets on ports 33434-33523 or just use traceroute with the -I switch?
Guess I need to do some reading about the whole process. That would be ICMP
packets, UDP packets, iptables How To, Networks How To, and traceroute. That
should keep me out of trouble for awhile.
