Traceroute Error

When I traceroute to an ip address 192.0.0.10, the very first line of the
Command response is as follows.

This servers uses the ethernet address of the Gateway router to access the
Wan.


begin 666 cvidal.vcf

Not an error, just a warning.  See "man traceroute" or "traceroute -h"
if you want to specify the network interface to use.

Thank you. I have read man  but, man doesnt tell me what I am being warned
about.

It is warning you that you have more than one network interface
and traceroute might not be using the one you want.  If you want
traceroute to use another network interface, use the "-i" option.

If traceroute is working as you expected just ignore the warning.
