My co-worker and I are curious if you can use the traceroute [IP Address] source [interface name] successfully on the Cisco ASA 55** series. We are running on 8.4(2).



ASA does not allow to specify outgoing interface/IP for traceroute command, unfortunately.

To check if packets are running thru ASA correctly you can use packet-tracer command:

packet-tracer input <input_interface> <proto> <source_addr_or_fqdn> <port> <dest_addr_or_fqdn> <port> <detailed>
  • packet-tracer may result in false positive, when routing is done incorrectly. capture may be used as well.
