Title: Looking glass traceroute
Post by: snarked on January 12, 2009, 11:54:20 AM
Traceroute mode - IPv6 unicast selected:
Quote
Bad argument '2607:...::1:1'. Need an IP address.
(Actual address obscured)
That IS an IP address.

IPv4 traceroutes work.  Time to upgrade?

Do you have JavaScript disabled?

The only time I've seen that is when Javascript is disabled, so the onChange() for the select element for Query Type doesn't get fired.  I just tried it here with JS on, and my own server's v6 address, which is syntactically similar to the one you posted, and it completed without that error.

The onChange() can probably go away now in any case.  It used to be needed to repopulate the router selection when there was a different list for v4 and v6.  With all the available routers now dual-stack, that's no longer the case.  I'll see what I can do to remove that call and de-JS-ify the page.

Yes, I always have javascript disabled except for a few trusted sites (and HE's looking glass isn't among them).

Javascript is a large security hole and often not necessary as plain html can usually perform the same action (at least the way js is commonly used, it can).

The onChange() auto-postback on the protocol change is gone, and the page is functionally JS-free now.

OK.  Works for IPv6 literals now.  Thanks.
