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 distribution 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.

       available in source  form  for  anonymous  ftp  ftp://ftp.inr.ac.ru/ip-
