Solaris traceroute (includes IPv6 functionality)

On Sun's Solaris, IPv6 traceroute functionality is included in the normal traceroute program, so a separate "traceroute6" isn't necessary. Sun's traceroute program has additional options to select between IPv4 and IPv6:

-A [inet|inet6]
	Resolve hostnames to an IPv4 (inet) or IPv6 (inet6) address only
-a
	Perform traceroutes to all addresses in all address families found for the given destination name.

Examples

Here are a few examples of the address-family selection switches for Solaris' traceroute . By default, IPv6 is preferred:

: leinen@diotima[leinen]; traceroute cemp1
traceroute: Warning: cemp1 has multiple addresses; using 2001:620:0:114:20b:cdff:fe1b:3d1a
traceroute: Warning: Multiple interfaces found; using 2001:620:0:4:203:baff:fe4c:d751 @ bge0:1
traceroute to cemp1 (2001:620:0:114:20b:cdff:fe1b:3d1a), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
 1  swiLM1-V4.switch.ch (2001:620:0:4::1)  0.683 ms  0.757 ms  0.449 ms
 2  swiNM1-V610.switch.ch (2001:620:0:c047::1)  0.576 ms  0.576 ms  0.463 ms
 3  swiCS3-G3-3.switch.ch (2001:620:0:c046::1)  0.461 ms  0.334 ms  0.340 ms
 4  swiEZ2-P1.switch.ch (2001:620:0:c03f::2)  0.467 ms  0.332 ms  0.348 ms
 5  swiLS2-10GE-1-1.switch.ch (2001:620:0:c03c::1)  3.976 ms  3.825 ms  3.729 ms
 6  swiCE2-10GE-1-3.switch.ch (2001:620:0:c006::1)  4.817 ms  4.703 ms  4.740 ms
 7  cemp1-eth1.switch.ch (2001:620:0:114:20b:cdff:fe1b:3d1a)  4.583 ms  4.566 ms  4.590 ms

If IPv4 is desired, this can be selected using -A inet :

: leinen@diotima[leinen]; traceroute -A inet cemp1
traceroute to cemp1 (130.59.35.130), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
 1  swiLM1-V4.switch.ch (130.59.4.1)  0.643 ms  0.539 ms  0.465 ms
 2  swiNM1-V610.switch.ch (130.59.15.229)  0.453 ms  0.553 ms  0.470 ms
 3  swiCS3-G3-3.switch.ch (130.59.15.238)  0.590 ms  0.426 ms  0.476 ms
 4  swiEZ2-P1.switch.ch (130.59.36.222)  0.463 ms  0.307 ms  0.352 ms
 5  swiLS2-10GE-1-1.switch.ch (130.59.36.205)  3.723 ms  3.755 ms  3.743 ms
 6  swiCE2-10GE-1-3.switch.ch (130.59.37.1)  4.677 ms  4.678 ms  4.690 ms
 7  cemp1-eth1.switch.ch (130.59.35.130)  5.028 ms  4.555 ms  4.567 ms

The -a switch can be used to trace to all addresses:

: leinen@diotima[leinen]; traceroute -a cemp1
traceroute: Warning: Multiple interfaces found; using 2001:620:0:4:203:baff:fe4c:d751 @ bge0:1

 2  swiNM1-V610.switch.ch (2001:620:0:c047::1)  0.580 ms  0.848 ms  0.561 ms
