Re: TTL differnt value in ping

Hi,

This means that for some reason the 3rd and 4th packets took a different path with less routers in it (TTL is reduced by one when passing through a router).

HTH, please rate if it does help,

Thank you

Re: TTL differnt value in ping

Hi,

As far as i can say, the TTL value in the received packet will be 255 minus the number of routers in the round-trip path. The 3rd and 4th packets have found another path on the internet while traveling to/from the destination and thus they took it.

HTH,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
