Have you tried using traceroute instead of tracepath? Tracepath uses a range of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) ports, one or many of which might be blocked at the firewall. I suspect this is what’s happening, although I recommend further testing and analysis to figure out the root cause. Also, sometimes tools with lower privilege levels have limitations. For your situation, I suggest trying traceroute and also verifying the firewall protocols. Given what you’ve described, the IP routing appears to be functional.
