    Exclamation traceroute send failed: Operation not permitted

    hi all,

    good day.
    when i try to run the command "traceroute www.yahoo.com" from root terminal, i got this error:
    Code:
    [root@bordeaux ~]# traceroute 66.94.230.49
    traceroute to 66.94.230.49 (66.94.230.49), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
    send failed: Operation not permitted
    send failed: Operation not permitted
    send failed: Operation not permitted
    send failed: Operation not permitted
     1  58.69.234.18 (58.69.234.18)  0.000 ms   0.000 ms   0.000 ms
    [root@bordeaux ~]#
    this linux box is now directly facing the internet with iptables-netfilter running.
    when i put it inside the private network, i can successfully traceroute.

    any idea how to make traceroute run successfully?
    thanks in advance.

    Check iptables....

    # iptables -v -L
    # cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables

    You should have an ICMP entry. This is mine...
    -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type any -j ACCEPT

    Mabuhay !!
