       traceroute6 - traces path to a network host

       wait time] destination [size]

HISTORY
       This  program has long history. Author of traceroute is Van Jacobson and it first appeared
       in 1988. This clone is based on a port of traceroute to IPv6 published in NRL IPv6 distri-
       bution  in 1996. In turn, it was ported to Linux by Pedro Roque. After this it was kept in
       sync by Alexey Kuznetsov <kuznet@ms2.inr.ac.ru>. And eventually entered iputils package.

SECURITY
       tracepath6 requires CAP_NET_RAWIO capability to be executed. It is safe to be used as set-
       uid root.

AVAILABILITY
       traceroute6  is	part  of iputils package and the latest versions are  available in source
       form at http://www.skbuff.net/iputils/iputils-current.tar.bz2.
