TRACEROUTE6(8)              System Manager's Manual             TRACEROUTE6(8)

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

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

     -A      Turn on AS# lookups and use the given server instead of the

     -a      Turn on AS# lookups for each hop encountered.

     -d      Debug mode.

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

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

     -I      Use ICMP6 ECHO instead of UDP datagrams.

     -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.

     -m hoplimit
             Specify maximum hoplimit.

     -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      Bypass the normal routing tables and send directly to a host on
             an attached network.  If the host is not on a directly-attached
             network, an error is returned.  This option can be used to send
             probes to a local host through an interface that has no route
             through it (e.g., after the interface was dropped by route6d(8)).

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

     -v      Be verbose.

     -w waittime
             Specify the delay time between probes.

     The traceroute6 command exits 0 on success, and >0 on errors.

     ping(8), ping6(8), traceroute(8)

     The traceroute6 command first appeared in WIDE hydrangea IPv6 protocol
     stack kit.
