[nsp] IP Options Needed?
I am passing this question along from a friend who is in the process of

will gather all the responses and send them to my friend.


> Also, IP operations question;

> You are evaluating a router for purchase and initially it doesn't
> support IP options (Unrecognized, stream ID, source route, record
> route, time stamp , security). But it supports trace route and Ping.

> What is the impact for you during the evaluation? And do you currently
> disable IP options for security reasons on your routers that are in
> the network. Any info on the subject is greatly appreciated.
