Traceroute settings

Traceroute is used when next hop is not available for SSH/telnet. Devices discovered using traceroute are marked as unmanaged in IP Fabric site diagrams. More information about traceroute as a protocol can be found on Wikipedia.

For traceroute configuration, go to Settings → Discovery & Snapshots → Discovery Settings → Discovery → Traceroute settings.

Trace scope – limits traceroute scope to the defined subnets. This prevents scanning networks outside an internal network.

Use RFC 6890 scopes – this button resets the Trace scope setting to the subnets defined in this RFC.

Protocol – the protocol used for traceroute can be selected from the options of ICMP (MS Windows like), UDP (Linux like), and TCP.

Port – in the case of UDP and TCP, the destination port can be specified.
