Fedora 7 Update: tcptraceroute-1.5-0.1.beta7.fc7



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-0557
2007-08-13 10:05:42.732720
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : tcptraceroute
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.5
Release     : 0.1.beta7.fc7
Summary     : A traceroute implementation using TCP packets
Description :
TCPtraceroute is a traceroute implementation using TCP packets.

The problem is that with the widespread use of firewalls on the modern
Internet, many of the packets that the conventional traceroute(8) sends
out (ICMP echo or UDP) end up being filtered, making it impossible to
completely trace the path to the destination. By sending out TCP SYN packets
instead of UDP or ICMP ECHO packets, tcptraceroute is able to bypass the most
common firewall filters.
