Re: traceroute

Hello,

the easiest way to find out to which port the MAC address is to issue the exec command:

show mac-address-table address

followed by the MAC address of the PC. If that MAC address is not local to the switch, this command will show you the trunk over which that MAC address is reachable, so you have to kind of track it down.

If you want to find out the IP address belonging to the MAC address, go to the device that functions as default gateway for your PC, and issue the command:

show arp | include

followed by the MAC address. This will give you the MAC/IP address pairs...

HTH,

Re: traceroute

Hi Friend,

AFAIK traceroute of MAC is not supported on all the platform and it is supported on some higher end switches like 4k and 6k with CATOS.
