PIX (Private Internet Exchange)

It is a popular IP firewall and NAT (Network Address Translation) appliance.

PIX firewall security is developed by Cisco Systems.

PIX firewall is used to protect your network with a stateful packet filtering firewall.

A firewall is a part of a computer system or network that is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications.

When I try:

 ping -R

I get:

PING ( 56(124) bytes of data.

but the list of nodes does not appear, and I wait for more than 5 minutes. traceroute gives immediately the list of nodes.

This is fedora 18, iptables stopped (and flushed), firewalld stopped.Could it be somehow due to not flushing firewalld rules ? (I don't know much about firewalld)
