NAME
     traceroute6 -- print the route IPv6 packets will take to the destination

SYNOPSIS
     traceroute6 [-dlnrv] [-f firsthop] [-g gateway] [-m hoplimit] [-p port]
                 [-q probes] [-s src] [-w waittime] target [datalen]

DESCRIPTION
     -d      Debug mode.

     -f firsthop
             Specify how many hops to skip in trace.

     -g gateway
             Specify intermediate gateway (traceroute6 uses routing header).

     -m hoplimit
             Specify maximum hoplimit.

     -l      Print both host hostnames and numeric addresses.  Normally
             traceroute6 prints only hostnames if -n is not specified, and
             only numeric addresses if -n is specified.

     -n      Do not resolve numeric address to hostname.

     -p port
             Set UDP port number to port.

     -q probes
             Set the number of probe per hop count to probes.

     -r

     -s src  Src specifies the source IPv6 address to be used.

     -v      Be verbose.

     -w waittime
             Specify the delay time between probes.
