traceroute Command Modifications for IPv6 Support

You can use the traceroute command to trace both the IPv4 and IPv6 routes to a specific host. From a protocol perspective, traceroute uses the same algorithm as ping. Use the -A command-line option to override this selection. You can trace each individual route to every address of a multihomed host by using the -a command-line option.

For detailed information, see the traceroute(1M) man page. For procedures that use traceroute, refer to Displaying Routing Information With the traceroute Command.
