Hi all,

Seeing following traceroute where the destination ip appears as first hop and then it goes out to internet . It should have stopped after first hop. What is happening here ? any ideas?

Tracing route to cncotbncfi [12.101.32.167]

over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 6 ms 1 ms 1 ms cncotbncfi [12.101.32.167]

2 9 ms 10 ms 8 ms 10.5.160.1

3 13 ms 8 ms 7 ms gw10.wlfdle.rnc.net.cable [66.185.91.97]

4 10 ms 9 ms 6 ms 66.185.83.41

5 * * * Request timed out.

6 * * * Request timed out.

7 * * * Request timed out.

8 * * * Request timed out.

Hi,

if you are not in the same subnet as 12.101.32.167,

what's your default gateway - should be the first replying device in fact?

Doesn't it have proxy ARP permitted?

BR,

Milan
