    IP_NEXTHOP socket option


    Hi,

    Can anyone please tell me which linux kernel distribution (and version) supports the IP_NEXTHOP socket option that one can specify in the setsockopt() socket api?? I'm quite lost as Google did not come up with anything meaningful...

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    It seems that the IP_NEXTHOP socket option is a feature of the Solaris operating system.

    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/...fnn/index.html

    Doing a quick scan of the Linux kernel source seems to indicate that there are many references to nexthop functions/calls, however. So maybe there is a way to do what you want in a way natively supported by the Linux kernel.
