Re: Decreasing or hiding Hops

Hi Ram,

One option is to create ACLs on your routers that block ICMP time-exceed messages with a local router-address. That way, only asterisks (*) will appear for your internal routers when the customer does a traceroute. Note that outbound ACLs do not affect packets generated by your router so you will have to be careful about where you place the ACLs.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

If that is what you want, you will need to configure tunnels or run MPLS within your network so that the TTL of the packets is not decremented along your internal routers.
