cjdns-traceroute -- trace cjdns packet routing

Synopsis

cjdns-traceroute <hostorip>

Description

Because cjdns is end to end encrypted, the standard traceroute always shows a direct connection.  Cjdns-traceroute queries cjdroute to discover what route would be used to send a packet to the destination IP. Note that just as with the standard traceroute, there is no guarantee that that precise route will actually be used with the next packet.

Cjdns-traceroute requires admin privilege.  The cjdnsadmin lib will  try to read /etc/cjdroute.conf for the admin password.  This will  normally succeed only for root.  Otherwise, it tries ~/.cjdnsadmin

Usage

Files

~/.cjdnsadmin /etc/cjdroute.conf

Bugs

Cjdns-traceroute throws an ugly exception if you forget to pass an IP or have the wrong admin password.
