Full Description


traceroute print the route that IP packets traverse going to a remote host.

Have you ever been on a system or a network switch and noticed there is some proprietary ping or traceroute without any of the options you need? Well, we have :p so lets get basic with traceroute>

$ docker run -it --rm gophernet/traceroute

Usage: traceroute [-46FIlnrv] [-f 1ST_TTL] [-m MAXTTL] [-q PROBES] [-p PORT]
    [-t TOS] [-w WAIT_SEC] [-g GATEWAY] [-s SRC_IP] [-i IFACE]

Trace the route to HOST

    -4,-6    Force IP or IPv6 name resolution
    -F    Set don't fragment bit
    -I    Use ICMP ECHO instead of UDP datagrams
    -l    Display TTL value of the returned packet
    -n    Print numeric addresses
    -r    Bypass routing tables, send directly to HOST
    -v    Verbose
    -f N    First number of hops (default 1)
    -m N    Max number of hops
    -q N    Number of probes per hop (default 3)
    -p N    Base UDP port number used in probes
        (default 33434)
    -s IP    Source address
    -i IFACE Source interface
    -t N    Type-of-service in probe packets (default 0)
    -w SEC    Time to wait for a response (default 3)
    -g IP    Loose source route gateway (8 max)

Example Usage with a target site (

$ docker run -it --rm gophernet/traceroute

traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 46 byte packets
 1 (  0.005 ms  0.004 ms  0.001 ms
 2 (  0.074 ms  0.117 ms  0.215 ms

To exit the trace prior to the trace finishing, use Control+P+Q twice to detach and Control+C to exit the container.
