Ping Record Route


You have used the ping command for nearly all the purpose related to network issues. Remembering your Red Hat Linux training will make you forget the number of counts also.

But do you know that you can use the -R option along with PING command to view the route the ping has taken for sending and receiving the ICMP request.

A good option to try if negotiating network problems.

PS: Generally disabled by many hosts over the Internet.

Here is a small output for you from my machine.
