Packet tracing

Packet tracing is the process by which you can verify the path of a packet through the layers to its destination.

The iptrace command performs network interface level packet tracing. The ipreport command issues output on the packet trace in both hexadecimal and ASCII format. The trpt command performs transport protocol level packet tracking for the TCP. The trpt command output is more detailed, including information on time, TCP state, and packet sequencing.
