Able to ping L3 VPN but unable to tracepath

Tags:

Linux hosting
I am running an L3 VPN between 2 edge routers and have connected one router to a client (Linux Host). I tried pinging from the client an IP address (present on the other router) that was learnt via BGP VPN. It's pinging, but I am unable to do tracepath from the client. It gives me a "No Reply" after it goes to the interface of the router connected to the client. Why is this happening? Could anyone please explain this behavior?

    Could your problem be connected with some UDP filtering and/or ICMP reply prohibition on the router?
