Hi,

Does anyone know of the implementation of IP options( source route, timestamp
and so on) under UNIX?  In our dept, there is only one line: m_free(opt); for
the IP options. 

Thanks in advance!

4.3BSD implements most of the IP options (except security); 4.2 BSD did not.

Why didn't Berkeley implement the security option?  Those of us selling systems
to the DOD need to add it anyway and it would probably be nice if a common
implementation across all users of 4.3BSD TCP existed.  Why do I care?  The
security option requires some user space changes to programs like FTP and
TELNET besides just kernel changes.

I have an idea -- why doesn't Gould implement it, and post the changes
to the net, or send them to Berkeley?  You seem to be the first to need
it, and making it available for free, like Berkeley did with the whole
protocol implementation, makes it likely that "a common implementation
across all users" will exist.
