IP Options Needed?


I am passing this question along from a friend who is in the process of
designing some new network equipment. Any comments will be helpful. I
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.
