The command: "tracert6" is on Windows 11, 10, .. not available
syntax on Windows XP, here are some examples of using `tracert6`
1. Simple Traceroute:
This command performs a simple traceroute to the IPv6 address or host `example.com`
2. Limit hops and set timeout:
tracert6 -h 20 -w 1000 example.com
Here the maximum number of hops is limited to 20 and the timeout for each response is 1000 milliseconds.
3. Set source address:
tracert6 -s 2001:db8::1 example.com
This command specifies the source address `2001:db8::1`
for the traceroute.
4. Use of routing header:
tracert6 -r example.com
Here the routing header is used to test the reverse route.
5. Traceroute without DNS resolution:
tracert6 -d example.com
This option skips DNS resolution for the hops found.
Remember to adjust the actual destination names, IP addresses, and source addresses according to your network configuration. If you need more information or features, you can consult the help (`tracert6 /?`
) or the official Microsoft documentation for Windows XP.
