Any Secrets To Traceroute

dppagcdppagc Posts: 293Member
When we do traceroute, is there any method to resolve ip addresses into hostnames?
Can it be done via firewall or other devices?
My company does not have documentation for ip addresses of devices.

    Traceroute attempts to resolve the IPs by default. You just need to have reverse entries for them. Its possible to configure a router as a DNS server, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    This reminds me of a programmer my company hired 20+ years ago. While I was telling him how to login and where things are on the network (Novel) and asked him to view a file from the command prompt. He began to tell me about an advanced DOS command that very few people know about. He interlocked his fingers and bent them out as he stretched his arms forward to crack his knuckles as if he was going to show me the coolest thing ever. Me being in constant learning mode was thinking, wow, this person is going to show me something really cool that I don't know so I leaned forward with excitement for what I was about to see.

    As he began to type in a quasi hunt and peck mode he slowly typed in the command "type" followed by the name of the file and struck the enter key with such a force as if to say, "How cool am I". I remember thinking how in the world did this person get past the interview process to get a programming job. He was fired in less than a month.

    You guys wasted 5 mins of my time. I was asking a serious question. The lack of documentation is driving me nuts

    I answered your question. Its done via DNS. Make some records and they will display.

    looking just at 2 pages of your forum post, they are all questions with none of them actually contributing anything.....give me, give me, give me.

    You wasted my bandwidth.

    Linux Man page for traceroute looks plenty detailed to me amigo. Don't understand the lack of documentation complaint.

    https://linux.die.net/man/8/traceroute

    And btw, I take strong exception to Nextgenhacker's video being characterized as a waste of time. It might be the second awesomest internet video ever, exceeded only by the website is down.

    We've also all answered many many many questions for you in the past we could say are "wastes of time" such as:
    - Is the CCIE SP the easiest CCIE because it has less videos than the rest on INE?
    - Can I get a CCIE in less than a year by watching a video a day?
    - I really don't like reading. Can I get a CCIE without reading a bunch of docs?
    - I don't understand DR/BDRs (after getting your CCNP)
    - I can't tell if a port is up/down on a switch (after getting your CCNP)
    - Is EUI64 a local or global address? (after getting your CCNP)

    At the point that the joke was made, your question was already answered by Networker. There's no hidden secrets of Traceroute on Cisco and it's pretty thoroughly documented. One quick google search for "Cisco Traceroute" and boom:

    Ok, then is there any shortcut to finding where an ip address resides such as using solarwinds?
    I am not complaining about traceroute documentation but my company documentation.

    What I think you need to do is the following:
    1: When stating/complaining about something, you need to be clear.
    2: Communicate. I bet you're struggling at work due to this. This also ties in with #1.
    3: Don't bash people on here. We are a community that is willing to help. If you're frustrated with work, tell someone at work.
    4: Research. It's not that hard. Apparently you have a hard time reading/understanding - I am not bashing you on this. However, research can be done without reading documentation. Although, if you want to be in IT, you're going to have to read documents and be able to understand them.

    In regards to Solarwinds, I believe there is. But what's your goal in this scenario? Depending on how you have your dashboard setup, you can search for a particular IP. Or if something is alerting you on the screen, you should be able to click that device and get the IP.
