Print the route IPv6 packets take to the destination


traceroute6 [-dlnrv] [-f firsthop] [-g gateway] [-m hoplimit] 
            [-p port] [-q probes] [-s src] [-w waittime] 
            target [datalen]

Runs on:



Enable debugging.
-f firsthop
Specify how many hops to skip in the trace.
-g gateway
Specify the intermediate gateway (traceroute6 uses the routing header).
Print both the host hostnames and numeric addresses (normally, only hostnames are printed; or, if -n is specified, only numeric addresses).
-m hoplimit
Specify the maximum hoplimit.
Don't resolve the numeric address to a hostname.
-p port
Set the UDP port number to port.
-q probes
Set the number of probes per hop count to probes.
Bypass the normal routing tables and send directly to a host on an attached network. If the host isn't on a directly attached network, an error is returned. You can use this option to "ping" a local host through an interface that has no route through it (for example, after the interface was dropped by routed).
-s src
Use this source IPv6 address.
Be verbose.
-w waittime
Specify the delay time between probes.
The destination hostname or IP number.
Increase the packet size by this amount. By default, the size is zero and no data is sent.


This utility prints the route that the IPv6 packets take to the destination. For more information, see traceroute.

Note: This utility needs to have the setuid ("set user ID") bit set in its permissions. If you use mkefs, mketfs, or mkifs on a Windows host to include this utility in an image, use the perms attribute to specify its permissions explicitly, and the uid and gid attributes to set the ownership correctly.

Exit status:

Successful completion.
