Cloud IPv4 IPv6 Looking Glass - AS36236, AS42210

Use this tool to perform ping/traceroutes via IPv4 or IPv6 from any of our locations. If you are unable to ping due to a firewall, try a traceroute to get an idea of the route to your location.



     

Commands

IPv4 - traceroute| Example

traceroute tracks the route packets take across an IP network on their way to a given host It utilizes the IP protocol’s time to live (TTL) field and attempts to elicit an ICMP TIME_EXCEEDED response from each gateway along the path to the host.


IPv4 - ping| Example

ping uses the ICMP protocol’s mandatory ECHO_REQUEST datagram to elicit an ICMP ECHO_RESPONSE from a host or gateway. ECHO_REQUEST datagrams (‘‘pings’’) have an IP and ICMP header, followed by a struct timeval and then an arbitrary number of ‘‘pad’’ bytes used to fill out the packet.


IPv4 - mtr| Example

mtr combines the functionality of the traceroute and ping programs in a single network diagnostic tool.As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and HOSTNAME. This allows mtr to print the response percentage and response times of the internet route to HOSTNAME.


IPv6 - traceroute6| Example

traceroute6 tracks the route packets take across an IP network on their way to a given host. It utilizes the IP protocol’s time to live (TTL) field and attempts to elicit an ICMP TIME_EXCEEDED response from each gateway along the path to the host.


IPv6 - ping6| Example

ping6 uses the ICMP protocol’s mandatory ECHO_REQUEST datagram to elicit an ICMP ECHO_RESPONSE from a host or gateway. ECHO_REQUEST datagrams (‘‘pings’’) have an IP and ICMP header, followed by a struct timeval and then an arbitrary number of ‘‘pad’’ bytes used to fill out the packet.


IPv6 - mtr6| Example

mtr6 combines the functionality of the traceroute and ping programs in a single network diagnostic tool.As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and HOSTNAME. This allows mtr to print the response percentage and response times of the internet route to HOSTNAME.
