Description Pierre Juhen 1999-07-28 19:33:45 UTC
This concerns traceroute-1.4a5-16.

When I use traceroute -i ppp0 url,

traceroute uses sl0 ip adress, not ppp0 adress.

traceroute -s <ppp0 ip.adress> does work.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-08-02 16:20:59 UTC
So what your saying is that you have two interfaces up, a sl0 and a
ppp0 device and that if you specify the ppp0 it will use the slip
device every time or am I wrong?

This problem appears to be resolved. Please reopen if I'm wrong.
