Re: Traceroute ....

Hi,

I would like to check if I get a traceroute results like this,

Tracing route to 129.215.42.34 over a maximum of 30 hops

1 2 ms 1 ms <1 ms 10.251.5.252

2 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 10.251.4.66

3 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms 129.215.32.22

4 15 ms 15 ms 15 ms 129.215.42.34

5 15 ms 15 ms 15 ms 129.215.42.34

6 15 ms 15 ms 15 ms 129.215.42.34

7 15 ms 15 ms 15 ms 129.215.42.34

If it keeps on repeating that IP on the hop, what does this mean ?

Thank you,

Cheers,

Re: Re: Traceroute ....

This is generally caused if there is a ASA/PIX in between the paths.

When NAT is enabled in PIX 7.0, the IP addresses of the PIX interfaces and the real IP addresses of the intermediate hops cannot be seen

The destination address is displayed multiple times for each internal hop.

To make ASA/PIX showup as hop in tracert you need to apply "set connection decrement-ttl" in "global_policy" in "default_class" plus the required rules for allowing ICMP types

Thank you Narayan. That is very helpful indeed.

Now for a silly question ... ;)

Apply "set connection decrement-ttl" in "global_policy" in "default_class" plus the required rules for allowing ICMP type

I presume that this is entered on the PIX firewall right ?

Pls advice,

Cheers,
