Basic question on traceroute

Hi all,

When I traceroute to some ip address, beyond a particular hop, only one ip address is repeatedly displayed in response. Can some body help me the reason behind this? See below...

Hostname>traceroute a.b.c.d

Type escape sequence to abort.
Tracing the route to a.b.c.d

  1 e.f.g.h 0 msec 0 msec 0 msec
  2 i.j.k.l 64 msec 68 msec 64 msec
  3 M.N.S.Q 116 msec 112 msec 112 msec
  4 M.N.S.Q 112 msec 112 msec 116 msec
  5 M.N.S.Q 112 msec 112 msec 112 msec

Thank you,

Nikhl

Re: Basic question on traceroute

The device could be sitting behind a NAT device, hence you are seeing the repetitive of the same ip address.
